South African journalist, Karima Brown, died from Covid-19 complications on March 4, Thursday. Brown had reportedly been admitted to hospital last month where she was receiving treatment. 

eNCA broke the news confirming the anchor of their show ‘The Fix’ has died. 

“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 in a statement. 

Brown was also the editor at FORBES WOMAN AFRICA, published by the ABN Group, from October to December 2013. She was a recognizable voice in the South African media landscape and known as a political commentator. 

Brown also hosted several television and radio shows, including programs on CNBC Africa and 702 Talk Radio.
