Editor of The Herald, Joram Nyathi has been suspended weeks into the job.
Nyathi was suspended over factional fights over control of Herald.

In his his new post Zvayi is in charge of special projects “including overseeing of well researched political and economic content as well as special revenue generating supplements.”
