Johannesburg - The Mail & Guardian’s deputy editor Moshoeshoe Monare has resigned.
Monare, who has been acting editor since Angela Quintal quit, resigned in September but had agreed to stay on to assist in the recruitment of a replacement.
He told News24 on Thursday that he would be staying in journalism, though he would not be drawn on his future plans.

Mail & Guardian CEO, Hoosain Karjieker, said the process of hiring a new editor would be finalised this week and an announcement would be made on Monday.

“Moshoeshoe has developed into one of our industry’s peers. He also has tremendous insight into the very many complex challenges we face as a country right now and I am sure he is destined for a great future in media,” he said in a statement.

Monare, who is also the deputy chairperson of South African National Editors Forum, said he would always be proud of having been part of the Mail & Guardian.

“Mail & Guardian is a crucial national institution and its founding mission and values crafted by passionate journalists 30 years ago have never lost their relevance and importance,” he said.

Thursday was his last day at the newspaper.

Quintal, who announced her resignation in August and finished off on Wednesday, left the paper to “to take a great leap forward into the unknown”.
