Public Enterprises Minister, Pravin Gordhan, says as a journalist Karima Brown exemplified courage and truth-telling.

Gordhan was paying tribute to the veteran journalist and broadcaster at a memorial service at Sacred Heart College in Johannesburg.

He says Brown was not scared to even call out her own colleagues who wittingly or unwittingly defended corruption or advanced State Capture.
“She teaches us and hopes we will continue to do this.

That we do not continue to fall for the echo chamber, be satisfied with soundbites but look at the trends and currents unfolding both in the world and our own country and continent and understand them better.  And understand their impact on elites and how they manipulate societies.  But more importantly, society ends,” says the Minister.
