BRIEFLY ABOUT THU­LANI TH­WALA

Swazi Observer - - NATIONAL NEWS -

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.
