Africa: CAJ News Africa Mourns Passing of Ndolwane

CENTRE for African Journalists (CAJ) News Africa has announced the death of its Digital and Online Editor, Mr Gift Ndolwane. Ndolwane passed away in his homeland in Zimbabwe this past weekend. He was 39.

CAJ News Africa Chief Executive Officer, Mr Savious-Parker Kwinika, expressed shock at the untimely death from an illness.

"I learnt with utter shock the death of one of the longest-serving desk editors at CAJ News Africa," Kwinika stated.

The award-winning Ndolwane will best be remembered for his prominent role in the organisation's decorated reign as the continent's prime Pan African news agency.

He also led the foray into CAJ News Africa' regional expansion exercise, the most prominent being the twinning agreement with Kenya's Radio Africa Group in 2016.

France-based World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) initiated the partnership under its 'Strengthening Media and Society' capacity building programme.

Condolences have been pouring in since the announcement of his death.

Ndolwane was laid to rest on Tuesday at Luveve cemetery in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. He is survived by wife and two children.
