Johannesburg - Former Sunday Independent editor Moshoeshoe Monare will join the Mail & Guardian in March.
“It's official. Pleased to announce that ex-Sunday Indy editor #Moshoeshoe Monare joins @mailandguardian as deputy editor next month,” the newspaper's editor Angela Quintal wrote on social networking site Twitter on Wednesday.
Monare had worked with Quintal at Independent Newspapers when she was group political editor, where she groomed him as her successor.
Independent Newspapers announced last week that Monare had resigned.
The company's CEO Tony Howard said Monare had tendered his resignation on Tuesday and would be leaving at the end of this month.
He said it was regrettable that Monare was leaving at a critical time when the group was embarking on a new growth strategy.
“Monare would have played a large part in the growth strategy for The Sunday Independent as well as other initiatives and strategies,” he said at the time.
Howard said the company was disappointed but wished him well.
Monare replaced Makhudu Sefara as editor of the newspaper two years ago. - Sapa
