With a head office in Secunda, the Echo Newspaper is well known in Mpumalanga owing to its wide area of distribution. The paper is delivered in bulk, every Thursday, to businesses found within the Highveld towns of Bethal, eMbalenhle, eMzinoni, Evander, Kinross, Kriel, Leandra, Secunda and Trichardt. The print order is a sizable 20 000 copies.

The Echo is committed to maintaining its reputation for bringing its readers highly relevant news stories that are both accurate and unquestionably credible, whether they address issues centring on local governance, crime, local events, school events, local sports and/or entertainment. The paper, as a member of the community, also views itself as a representative of the people, becoming, by default, its “watchdog”.

Secunda (deriving from the Latin for “second/following”) owes its origin to the need for South Africa to be as independent from oil imports as possible. Sasol, the well-known oil producing company, laid the foundations for Secunda as they identified the area as a suitable site for a large secondary oil refinery. Beginning as a one-man “town” in 1976, Secunda is today one of the Highveld’s many buzzing commercial centres.
