Well-known journalist and broadcaster Karima Brown has died from COVID-19-related complications on Thursday, March 4.
Brown hosted several television programmes and radio talk shows. Most recently, Brown hosted eNCA’s weekly show ‘The Fix’. She was also a respected political analyst.
“We are enormously proud of the fierce determination she had shown, since her early years, to get involved in bringing about a more just, inclusive, and anti-racist South Africa,” read a statement Brown’s family released.
“This determination also shaped her fearless approach to journalism. She was driven by a conviction that journalism must be in service of justice.”
