Condolences for late City Press editor

The South African government has expressed its deep sadness following the passing away of Dumisane Lubisi, who worked as the executive editor of City Press newspaper.

In a statement issued on Sunday, the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) said Lubisi was as a professional journalist, who was committed to ensuring that a plurality of voices found expression in the City Press.

“Our hearts go to [his] family, friends and media colleagues,” said GCIS Director-General Phumla Williams.

The government believes that the media plays a critical role in serving the public interest.

As South Africa and the world will be commemorating “Black Wednesday “ on 19 October to reflect on media freedom, journalists who have committed to ethics of the profession should be commended, said Williams. – SAnews.gov.za
