Rising Sun Durban Central

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 previous state enforced racial barriers recede into the past.

Today, the Durban CBD is a veritable melting pot of ethnicities and cultures, and as such, is a tourism hotspot for international travellers wanting to experience the energy and life of a world-class African city. The Rising Sun is proud to be associated with Durban, and we hope that we contribute positively to the communities of the inner city. As a community newspaper, we are also dedicated to fulfilling the vision of providing news, entertainment, sports, school events and shopping bargains that are highly relevant to residents of Durban’s central areas. Finally, it goes without saying that the Rising Sun looks forward to continuing the good relations we enjoy with our urban audience.
