Johannesburg - Barney Mthombothi the editor of the Financial Mail, a weekly business magazine, has resigned after eight years at the helm of the publication, Business Day reported on Wednesday.

Mthombothi, a seasoned journalist and highly regarded in the industry was the editor of the Sunday Tribune before joining Financial Mail 8 years ago. He also worked as the editor-in-chief of SABC Radio News, as well as assistant editor of The Star and editor of the Sowetan.

“I just want to thank you for co-operation. I am very sad but it’s time to go; I have been here for too long,” Mthombothi told staff on Wednesday.

“We greatly regret losing a colleague of this calibre. We wish Barney only the very best and we will jealously guard the integrity with which he edited the Financial Mail,” BDFM publisher Peter Bruce was quoted as saying.

During his career Mthombothi received a Reuters Fellowship at Oxford in 1986 and the Nieman Fellowship at Harvard University in the US in 1994.

He also worked for the BBC News Service in London, the Business Day reported.
