According to the publication, Ntuli has progressed through the ranks over the years from senior reporter to lifestyle editor, deputy news editor, news editor, assistant editor and more recently acting weekend editor.

Ntuli says, "Isolezwe is not just a brand to me. It's a tool that has not only given me a great opportunity for career and personal growth, but also the ability to positively influence, change and better the lives of our readers."

With the launching of a number of projects and concepts such as Ingqwele kaMaskandi and Intandokazi, Ntuli says that she is eager to take on the leadership role.

"I am excited about what the future holds for Isolezwe and I have no doubt that we will continue delivering what our audiences want and have come to expect from us — human interest stories and angles that keep them informed," adds Ntuli.

Aneez Salie, editor-in-chief of Independent Media, says, "Ntuli has been an integral part of Isolezwe's achievements over the years. She is a respected team player with a keen understanding of the issues that affect the lives of Isolezwe's readers. Her promotion is well deserved and we look forward to even better things for the paper under her tenure.

"Iso liwela umfula ugcwele, which loosely translated means, 'you can make the impossible, possible, if you desire it'", concludes Ntuli.
