Merebank Rising Sun

The Rising Sun newspapers were founded in 1986 by CEO, Vijay Maharaj. As Apartheid zoning laws designated communities based on ethnicity, Vijay recognised a need for reputable newspapers to serve the South African Indian community and address local issues in (then) Indian-designated areas. Since the democratisation of South Africa in 1994, the once exclusively Indian communities around the country still celebrate their vibrant culture and heritage while the previously state enforced racial barriers recede into the past.

Merebank is situated in the South Durban Basin, and due to the Separate Areas Act passed by the Apartheid regime, was once designated as an Indians-only area. Today, the majority of residents are still of Indian descent, and prominent languages include English, Tamil and Urdu. The Merebank Rising Sun is perfectly poised to deliver relevant and high quality local news to the community, and, moreover, has a deep understanding of Indian diaspora culture. With over thirty years’ worth of experience in being a reliable and credible news source in Merebank, we look forward to continuing to build and maintain a close, trust based, relationship with our readers.
