Maroela Media is a website specifically catering for the Afrikaans community. The aim is to create an online social community where visitors can read the news, take part in discussions on a variety of subjects and read about various light hearted to more serious issues. Maroela Media first entered cyberspace in July 2011 and is part of the Solidarity Movement.
The communication style is informal. An environment has been created that takes the visitor on a nostalgic trip back to the warmth of a grandmother’s kitchen… this time with a modern twist! The vision is to establish a new media environment where Afrikaans people can get together, share opinions and let Afrikaans thrive. Maroela Media has got two divisions:
– Maroela Media website
– Draadloos, a radio programme production house
Maroela Media is the core of the business and offers visitors the following:
- News and news commentary as and when it happens, from early in the morning until late at night, seven days a week. Maroela is often first with breaking news;
- Health information;
- News on books, music, food, the arts, etc.;
- Business and financial information, and more.
