Zanele Mthembu (Class IX, Tariro) to head Newzroom Afrika’s newsroom

Zanele Mthembu

Television, film production and broadcasting executive Zanele Mthembu is one of a trio of top media people appointed to head South Africa’s new 24-hour news channel, Newzroom Afrika. It broadcasts on DStv channel 405, replacing the former Gupta-owned ANN7, which was taken off air last year.

The channel launched just before the national election earlier this month after a competitive bidding process, which it won ahead of 111 other interested parties.

It’s an exciting development and brings a fresh lens to the South African media landscape, as Newzroom Afrika is 100% black-owned and 50% women-owned.

Zanele’s colleagues in the leadership of the news channel are JJ Thabane and Malebo Phage.
