I feel honoured and humbled to have been given the opportunity to share in the historic 175th anniversary of The Witness.

Over its long journey, The Witness has successfully captured the readers of Pietermaritzburg and its surrounding areas and has become an essential part of homes, institutions, businesses and communities.

The benefit and significance of reading newspapers like The Witness extends far beyond imagination. Besides adverts, entertainment and news articles; editors, reporters, opinion makers, analysts and even letter writers offer write ups on different issues.
