Sbu Mpungose is a South African editor. Born in 1982, She grew up in Eshowe, KwaZulu-Natal and studied Journalism at Tshwane University of Technology (2000 – 2003). She didn’t plan to become a magazine journalist but says it was a natural second choice because of her fascination with the industry.

After her appointment as editor of Bona in 2009, Sbu received the Vodacom Rising Star Award, which applauds the efforts of a woman under the age of 30 who is already making an impact on the media industry
