The Mail & Guardian has terminated the employment of its political editor, Matuma Letsoalo. The termination follows an independent investigation done into allegations of a conflict of interest.
The M&G followed the recommendations of the investigator, by instituting a disciplinary hearing during which Letsoalo had legal representation.
The chairperson of the hearing found that Letsoalo had breached the M&G’s code of ethics.
Letsoalo has been an employee of the M&G since 2003 and has won several awards for his work.
Khadija Patel, editor-in-chief, said Letsoalo had been an important member of the M&G team, and she wished him well in his future endeavours.
In June 2019, the M&G reached a settlement agreement with Letsoalo, facilitated by the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA). His case was however not heard at the CCMA and his dismissal thus stands.
