JOHANNESBURG - Journalist and broadcaster Karima Brown has died of COVID-19 on Thursday.
Brown anchored eNCA's weekly show 'The Fix' and was a regular political analyst on the channel.
She was remembered by eNCA anchor Dan Moyane when the news broke on Thursday morning.
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.
"This determination also shaped her fearless approach to journalism. She was driven by a conviction that journalism must be in service of justice."

I know many people have different stories of Karima Brown- but I have experienced her on a different level, seeing her fight for her producers, fight for them to get paid right. Her passing comes as a shock and I pray for her family during this time.— Camagwini (@ginzimas) March 4, 2021
