Mid South Coast Rising Sun

The Rising Sun newspapers were founded in 1986 by CEO, Vijay Maharaj, when he launched the well-known Chatsworth Rising Sun. Vijay recognised a need for reputable newspapers to serve the unique needs of the South African Indian community in general, and, specifically, to address local issues in the Indian-designated areas during Apartheid.

Since the democratisation of South Africa in 1994, the once exclusively Indian communities around the country still celebrate their vibrant culture and heritage as previous racial barriers recede into the past. The continuing success of the Rising Sun brand suggests that South Africans of Indian descent appreciate news sources that understand and attend to their distinctive cultural paradigm.

The Mid Coast Rising Sun is distributed in Scottburgh, Umkomass and Umzinto, and like all titles in the Rising Sun stable, it strives to meet the highest standards of journalistic excellence and integrity. We are also very conscious of maintaining the good, trust-based, relationship we have built over the years with our readers.
