Mduduzi Mathuthu leaves Zim­pa­pers

The Herald (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Her­ald Re­porter

ZIM­PA­PERS has an­nounced that The South­ern Times editor Mduduzi Mathuthu will be leav­ing the com­pany at the end of this month.

Mathuthu joined the group in Novem­ber 2013 as editor of The Chronicle and quickly dis­tin­guished him­self with some me­morable front pages, a knack he car­ried over to The South­ern Times, where his hand and craft were soon vis­i­ble.

Mathuthu, who had been de­ployed to Wind­hoek, Namibia, from July 2016 to head The South­ern Times, a joint ven­ture be­tween Zim­pa­pers and New Era of Namibia, has ad­vised Zim­pa­pers that he wishes to be closer to his ail­ing mother in Bu­l­awayo and would like to pur­sue other in­ter­ests.

A spokesper­son for Zim­pa­pers yes­ter­day said the board and man­age­ment wished to thank Mathuthu for his ded­i­ca­tion and ser­vice and was con­fi­dent that he would be suc­cess­ful in his fu­ture en­deav­ours. Mathuthu said: “The last three years and two months have been an in­cred­i­ble jour­ney on which I met and worked with some of the most amaz­ing peo­ple, start­ing with The Chronicle and later The South­ern Times.

“These ex­pe­ri­ences shaped me into a bet­ter jour­nal­ist and a bet­ter per­son.

“It’s a sad mo­ment to be leav­ing Zim­pa­pers, the finest me­dia com­pany in Zim­babwe, but also a tri­umphant one too be­cause we achieved some in­cred­i­ble things with col­leagues. These great me­mories I will take to the grave.”
