M&G parts ways with political editor

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.
