Isolezwe appoints Kiki as its new editor


Cape Town 24 July 2020 – Zulu-language newspaper, Isolezwe, has appointed Kiki Ntuli as editor to lead the paper going forward.Isolezwe bucks the current trend for print media, in as much as its readership remains steady and is in fact, on an upwards trajectory.  It is a product that Ntuli knows well, having pretty much cut her teeth on it from almost the beginning of her career, and that of the paper itself.

After joining Independent Media as an intern in 2002, Ntuli became a general reporter on the paper in 2004, covering a variety of beats.  She has progressed through the ranks over the years from senior reporter to lifestyle editor, deputy news editor, news editor, assistant editor, and more recently, acting weekend editor.

Passionate about the publication and the people it represents, Ntuli says: “Isolezwe is not just a brand to me. It’s a tool that has not only given me a great opportunity for career and personal growth, but also the ability to positively influence, change and better the lives of our readers.”

Having been deep in the thick of things over the years, with the launching of a number of projects and concepts such as Ingqwele kaMaskandi and Intandokazi, Ntuli is eager to take on the leadership role: “I am excited about what the future holds for Isolezwe and I have no doubt that we will continue delivering what our audiences want and have come to expect from us – human interest stories and angles that keep them informed.”

Congratulating Ntuli on her appointment, Aneez Salie, editor-in-chief of Independent Media remarked: “Kiki has been an integral part of Isolezwe’s achievements over the years.  She is a respected team player with a keen understanding of the issues that affect the lives of Isolezwe’s readers. Her promotion is well deserved, and we look forward to even better things for the paper under her tenure.”

Assisting Ntuli on taking the brand to even greater heights, is a vibrant team of committed professionals, whom Ntuli acknowledges as being integral to the brand’s enduring success.
For the last word, Ntuli says: “Iso liwela umfula ugcwele “, which loosely translated means: you can make the impossible, possible if you desire it.
