Gilbert Nyambabvu has stepped down as NewZimbabwe.com Editor, a post he held for nearly 6 years.
Nyambabvu joined the online publication in 2009 and is leaving to pursue other interests.
NewZimbabwe.com Chief Executive Officer, Mr Jeff Madzingo, wished Nyambabvu godspeed in his future endeavours. Said Madzingo:
Gilbert’s professionalism sustained the NewZimbabwe brand over the years and he leaves at a time when the paper continues to grow from strength to strength even in the era of social media.
We want to thank him on behalf of our readers and advertisers.
Speaking on his departure, Nyambabvu said:
Well, you want to go gracefully, and before Cdes start plotting a coup against you!
… More seriously though, a huge part of me is really sad to be leaving this pioneer of online Zimbabwean journalism.
Even so, I’m very grateful to management for the opportunity to have been part of this tremendously impactive publication; and to the rest of the NewZim team for their support over the years.
Meanwhile, Deputy Editor, Nkosana Dlamini takes over as Acting Editor pending the appointment of a substantive Editor.
