Darren has resigned as Bureau Chief in Johannesburg. He and his family are heading back to England. I’m sad to see Darren leaving. He has been an avid supporter of my work here.
However, Darren’s recommended me as his replacement – Bureau Chief of the Joburg office. This effectively means I would be in charge of all African news coverage. I’ve also been offered a four-part series profiling the Jackal and the conflict here. It seems the job is mine. All I need to do is say yes.
