THE Greater Kokstad Municipality communication manager, Sabelo Ncwane, is leaving his post to start a new journey - that of senior communication manager at Umzumbe Local Municipality from next month.

The 40-year-old Ncwane arrived in Kokstad in 2008 as the EG and Usher Memorial Hospital communication manager before moving to GKM as communications manager in 2012.

“Working for GKM made me a better person and my job was exciting, but very demanding sometimes. Previous communication managers did not spend as many years at GKM as I did, but I am glad I spent five years here,” said Ncwane.

As communication manager some of his duties included doing monthly reports and liaising with media houses.

Speaking to Fever, he thanked the media for working with him.

“I thank councillors, the mayor, the municipal manager, GKM staff and other stakeholders for working with me to make Kokstad a better place.

“I will miss Kokstad.”

After completing his media and communication degree, he wanted to be a radio presenter at Ukhozi FM, but this was not to be.

He ended up teaching at Luthuli High for three years before moving to Thekwini­ College as a lecturer.

Ncwane is the father of three boys, Nhlakanipho, Kusasalethelihle and Khethelolenkosi.

In 2015 he was told by a doctor he was at risk of becoming diabetic and as a result he decided to start running.

Ncwane is now a professional runner and has completed the Old Mutual Tw
