It all began sometime around early 2001, when Vosloorus resident, Zaid Sipho Khumalo spotted a need for a local newspaper to serve the interests of the communities in the three largest townships in what was then known as the East Rand, Vosloorus, Thokoza and Katlehong.

Khumalo dreamed of launching such a newspaper to be the “bridge” between these communities, their municipality, other government stake-holders and local businesses and industries. His dream soon became a reality.

The first edition of the Kathorus Mail, with a print order of 20 000, hit the streets in August the following year. The newspaper immediately took flight being voted the “Best Emerging Community Newspaper” at the Sanlam Community Press Awards only two year later.

Since then , with the much valued support of clients, including Clinix Hospitals, Total SA, Springbok Pharmacy, Fair Price and Build-It the paper has grown from strength to strength.
