BRIEFLY ABOUT THULANI THWALA
Thulani Thwala was employed by the Swazi Observer as a cub reporter in 1995. He worked here for five years until the company closed down in 2000.
Thereafter, he moved to the Times of Swaziland where he worked for 10 years. Due to his excellence in the art of news reporting, Thwala received recognition from senior managers at the Times such as the late Vusie Roy Ginindza who quickly facilitated his rise into senior positions. He occupied the position of News Editor, a position he held until he was again elevated to the position of Editor of the Swazi News, a Saturday publication, sometime around 2004. Thwala held this position until he resigned from the Times in 2010 and re-joined the Swazi Observer as Editor. He held this position until the early hours of yesterday when he passed away, leaving members of the profession he has served with such great distinction in complete shock and dismay.
