Siqoko has been at the helm since November 2015. "It's been a huge honour to lead and edit the Sunday Times during a very difficult period," says Siqoko.

"I want to thank the whole Sunday Times team of hard-working journalists, editors, admin support, marketing, sales, circulation and everyone else involved in putting together this great publication each week. It has been a wonderful four years and it was made all possible because I was surrounded by an excellent executive editorial team," adds Siqoko.

Current Sowetan editor S'thembiso Msomi will take over from Siqoko on Sunday, 1 March. Nwabisa Makunga, editor of The Herald, will be the new Sowetan editor.

"I am looking forward to going back to where it all started for me, and working with the entire Eastern Cape Arena team at the Daily Dispatch and The Herald, to grow the business," Siqoko concludes.
