HARARE – Zimbabwe’s longest serving journalist and one of President Robert Mugabe’s most strident critics in the media has been called from retirement for the third time – this time to rescue the President’s most fanatical supporter, The Herald newspaper.
The Zimbabwe Times can reveal that veteran journalist William “Bill” Saidi (77) has been offered the job of deputy editor-in-chief of the flagship of State-run Zimbabwe Newspapers, The Herald.

Saidi confirmed that he had been "offered the job."
In addition to being one of the nation's most respected journalists, Saidi is an alumnus who through the years has demonstrated a genuine commitment to professional journalism.
His vast experience in the field, and his many contacts nationwide, will be a tremendous asset to the Herald as the new government renews its emphasis on professional news reportage.
