Moipone Malefane

A university graduate in Journalism Studies, Moipone started her career doing in-service training at the South African Press Association. She has since spent her days crafting and honing her skills as a seasoned political journalist. While in training, Moipone was expected to cover a range of areas and issues and realised the value of reporting on general news. After four years of gaining the necessary experience she discovered her area of interest and joined The Star as a political reporter responsible for covering the Gauteng government. In 2005 she went on to join the Sunday Times politics team. Moipone has made her mark as a journalist and in 2007 was honoured with the Mondi Shanduka Award in the Analysis and Commentary category.
