Karima Brown will be missed for her probing skills

It was confirmed she died due to COVID-19 related complications on Thursday.

A fearless character who took anyone and everything heads- on, Brown told and probed the truth no matter how painful it was.

Political parties can best attest to her tough stance and resolute.

She had been on a ventilator after being admitted to hospital last month.

Brown anchored eNCA’s weekly show ‘The Fix’ and was a regular political analyst on the channel.

Brown’s family released a statement, saying she will be laid to rest in a private burial ceremony.

“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,” the statement read.

“For a long time, Karima has been a robust voice in South Africa’s media landscape. Her years of activism preceded this. She had a big personality and didn’t shy away from voicing her opinions. Karima believed in hope. She was also a loving mother, a loyal friend and a committed colleague. Her death leaves a massive void for many,” eNCA MD Norman Munzhelele said.

“Our thoughts are with her son, family and friends at this sad time.”

At the time of publishing messages of condolences were streaming in from colleagues in the industry to political parties, businesses and civil society.

Our deepest condolences to the family and friends.
