Bulawayo editor fired as succession battle heats up

15 0

HARARE – Mduduzi Mathuthu, the editor of Bulawayo’s daily newspaper The Chronicle, has suddenly been transferred to become editor of The Southern Times, an obscure title published from Windhoek and distributed in the region.

Insiders say he is a victim of the infighting among the political elite over who will succeed President Robert Mugabe, 92, when he dies.


Zimbabwe Newspapers owns The Chronicle and many readers commented that the quality of its news coverage improved after Mathuthu was appointed editor in 2013.
