IT has been a pleasure watching the Maritzburg Fever grow into the brand that it is today.

With the first edition of the Mirror hitting the streets 20 years ago to the vibrant paper that it is today, it’s easy to see that the Fever has established itself as a platform that highlights community achievement and addresses pressing issues head on.

The success of the title has always been due to the dedicated team who work to ensure that the needs of the community are met.

When it was time to pass on the reigns from the previous publishing editor, Bridget Siebert, we didn’t have to look too far.

The current publisher, Marijke van Bosch, and editor Candyce Krishna have brought their wealth of experience in community newspapers to develop the product that it is today.

Through research, getting their hands dirty in the community with the Fever’s dedicated team of sales representatives and a journalist, they have developed the Fever into the brand that it is today.

On a weekly basis, it is a pleasure to read about a designer making headlines internationally and I have to say Pietermaritzburg definitely has some of the best bakers in the province. I am also so impressed when I read about the community rallying together to help those in need or going on a rally to bring down crime statistics – this is definitely a proud community.

Equally, we are just as proud to represent Maritzburg and look forward to seeing our residents reach new heights.

I would like to thank each client and reader who have welcomed the Fever into their homes and businesses and I want to reiterate that we are here for you. Here’s to many more years of being your watchdog.
