The death of Media24's Mandy Rossouw has come as a shock to the South African journalism community. Mandy's passing has left a gap in the industry that will not be easily filled. Her enthusiasm, diligence and deep knowledge of her field will remain an example to all journalists.
"The Southern African Freelancers' Association (Safrea) recognises her invaluable contribution to the field of journalism. She was an excellent investigative journalist who will be sorely missed in the media environment," says Helen Ueckermann, Safrea chair.
"Our sincere condolences go out to Mandy's family, friends and colleagues at this sad time."
