Cape Town - Independent Newspapers has shuffled editorial staff at its Western Cape newspapers - again.

Just over a year after he was appointed editor of the Cape Times, Gasant Abarder has now been moved over to the same position at the Cape Argus.

Aneez Salie, who was Abarder’s deputy will now take over as Cape Times editor.

Abarder was previously in charge of the Argus title.

Independent Newspapers’ owner Iqbal Survé congratulated Salie on his appointment.

The Cape Times  has been under a cloud of controversy since Alide Dasnois was fired as Cape Times editor at the end of 2013, followed by a string of other high-profile exits of senior staff.

Survé said the “editorial values of balance, fairness, accuracy and diversity will continue to be upheld” at the newspapers.

"We are not in support of anyone. We genuinely want to be free, fair and balanced," said Survé.

    Surve is a liar. When he talks of 'Editorial values of fairness' who is he trying to fool. He is right up the body part of the ANC where the sun does not shine!
