Chief sub-editor Stewart Chabwinja becomes assistant editor to replace Dumisani Muleya who is now editor at the paper. Chabwinja has been replaced by Zivisai Chagaka previously at the Financial Gazette.
Faith Zaba moves from being political editor to news editor, swapping roles with Dingilizwe Ntuli who has been appointed political and assignments editor, responsible for investigations and special projects coordination.
Chabwinja has huge experience having worked at AMH for more than 10 years. He was at the Standard for seven years and has been at the Independent for three years.
Zaba has worked at different organisations, including ZBC, Ziana and the Tribune.
Ntuli also has vast experience after working at the Herald and Sunday Times in South Africa.
Owen Gagare, formerly at the Chronicle and NewsDay, is now chief reporter.
Brian Chitemba also returns to the Harare office from Bulawayo. Chitemba and Gagare will be part of the investigations desk.
AMH editor-in-chief Vincent Kahiya said the appointments would reinforce the Independent team, while improving the paper’s news coverage, content and market position.
“AMH has continued on a strong growth trajectory and this should also be reflected in the quality of our products. Faith and Stewart have made their mark in the media industry and we believe they will add great value to the Independent in their new positions. Ntuli and Chagaka have a wealth of experience and that should help strengthen the team and quality of the paper.
“AMH will continue to beef up its teams and improve its news gathering methods and content as well as technology to offer cutting-edge news, information and analysis to become the leading publishing group in the country,” said Kahiya. — Staff Writer.
