ABOUT US

The Post/Die Pos was founded in October 1982 by Nicola and Eugéne Diener. The business was later taken over by editor and owner, Danie Stoltz. In 2001 it was again sold to two journalists, Bea Emslie and Keina Swart. Their vision and mission was and still is to this day aimed at working more closely with communities in the Waterberg area.
