Pietermaritzburg - The new editor of The Witness in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal, is to be Fikile-Ntsikelelo Moya, 37, at present editor of the Sowetan in Johannesburg.

He will take up his new post on April 1.

Moya's appointment follows the announcement in November that the present editor of The Witness, John Conyngham, will step down after 15 years as head of the editorial department.

Conyngham is to take up an editorial management position and a place on the board.

Moya was born in Soweto and matriculated in 1990.

After school he submitted articles to newspapers in Johannesburg and his portfolio of freelance work led to him being accepted for a training programme at the Independent Newspapers' journalism school.

He was employed by the Star from 1997 to 2003 and then headhunted by the Mail & Guardian, eventually becoming associate editor there.

He was then appointed editor of the Sowetan, a position he held for 18 months.

Speaking to Witness staff on Sunday, chairperson Stuart Craib said to have an editor of Moya's calibre will be a great asset to the paper and an endorsement of its 164-year-old tradition of independent reporting and commentary.
