Public Eye

The Public Eye, founded in late 1999, began quite modestly as it enjoyed a fortnightly distribution of 12 500 prints in the eastern suburbs of Pietermaritzburg. As it escalated in popularity, it took only two years before the Eye saw circulation grow to 25 000 prints per week. Just another two years went by before demand grew to a whopping 30 000 prints, distributed weekly to areas like Bombay Heights, Copesville, Raisethorpe, Panorama Gardens, Woodlands, Eastwood and surrounds (i.e. Pietermaritzburg North).

Additionally, we are proud to point out that we are eager supporters of charity initiatives, and consequently have adopted a very assertive Corporate Social Investment programme. The Eye has partnered with local stakeholders on social upliftment campaigns such as Love to Live, and more recently, we joined hands with the KZN local government in the Sukuma Sakhe campaign, which aims at tackling a variety of social ills, including: drug abuse, teen pregnancy and crime.

As a publication, we strive to achieve only the highest levels of journalistic excellence and integrity, and as a community member, we are always keen to contribute to the wellbeing of the society we serve.
