About Rising Sun Lenasia

History:
In 1986, there was a dire need for an affordable newspaper within the Indian community. This prompted Vijay Maharaj, CEO of The Rising Sun Newspapers to launch a free newspaper to document, profile and broadcast the latest news and advertising specials. Presently, our free community papers are delivered to every door weekly. In Gauteng, we reach out to the communities of Lenasia, Lenasia South, Zakariyya Park, Azadville, Roshnee, Dadaville, De Deur, Migson Manor, Bushkoppies, Nancefield and parts of Ennerdale. The Rising Sun Fordsburg also distributes to Fordsburg and Mayfair. In KwaZulu-Natal, we serve the communities of Chatsworth, Phoenix, Verulam and Tongaat, Merebank, Overport and Mid-South Coast. The Rising Sun Newspaper has become a powerful medium since its inception and continues to earn the respect among advertisers as well as readers.

Mission:
Our motto is to work towards a non-racial, non-sexist, democratic South Africa. We believe that education is the weapon to fight ignorance, poverty and unemployment.

Aim:
Our dynamic team of journalists strive to provide breaking news with their cutting edge journalism skills. We continue to highlight achievements, address social issues and document the development of our communities.

Social responsibility:
Over the years our company has formed a strong partnership with various community-based organisations, by providing assistance financially and through media coverage
