Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) congratulates Sibusiso Ngalwa who is the current Chairperson of the South African National Editors Forum on his appointment to the Executive Committee of the Africa Editors Forum.  

This appointment is particularly important as the media sector is facing a variety of challenges such as, fake news and declining revenues. The editor’s forum is an expression of the need for editors and all media practitioners in the continent to work together towards preserving the journalism and promoting media freedom. 

The Africa Editors Forum plays a crucial role in fostering dialogue among media professionals and addressing challenges faced by the media industry across the African continent and the GCIS recognises the significant contributions made by the SANEF in upholding press freedom, ethical journalism, and media diversity in South Africa. 

GCIS Acting Director-General, Nomonde Mnukwa said, “we believe that the involvement of Mr Ngalwa in the Africa Editors Forum Executive Committee will undoubtedly enhance the forum's efforts in promoting values of media freedom on a broader scale and fostering collaboration among African media organisations. 

“We also acknowledge the importance of a free and responsible press in any thriving democracy. Therefore, Mr Ngalwa’s appointment is a recognition of the SANEF professionalism and commitment to journalistic principles.”
