Nkepile Mabuse Leaves CNN For eNCA

Nkepile Mabuse, who brilliantly covered the Marikana Massacre for the world, is leaving CNN International (DStv 401) and returning to the place that started her now illustrious career as a news reporter, Etv. Well sort of, she is actually joining etv's 24 hour news channel eNCA. 

Nkepile Mabuse has been offered a job as an executive producer of a yet to be named new current affairs show for the eNCA which will start later this year.

eNCA is said to be looking to add a new flagship current affairs show after 3rd Degree was abruptly ended two months ago and which was shown on e.tv and the eNCA.

Mabuse started with eNews in 2000, left for CNN International in February 2008 just before the eNews Channel launched.

Recently she presented Outside Eye for the eNCA while she was still also with CNN International 

In a statement she says;
"Africa is on the rise and the world is hungry for African content and context," 
"I believe the eNCA is perfectly positioned to become the future platform of choice on Africa. The skills I've acquired at CNN should enable me to make a positive contribution towards eNCA's rise," 

Hopefully this will not be the end of Nkepile's career in front of the camera. I don't personally care where I see her, as long as I get to see her. 

Sidebar: Quick question to Nkepile... now that she is leaving CNN and her Twitter handle is @NkepileCNN can one assume that the new one will be @NkepileENCA?
