Premier pays tribute to ‘gutsy journalist’

Gauteng Premier Nomvula Mokonyane has added her voice to the hundreds paying tribute to political journalist Mandy Rossouw.

“Let me pass my condolences to the family and friends of journalist Mandy Rossouw, who was found dead at her house at the tender age of 33 on Monday.

“There is no doubt in my mind that South Africa has lost a passionate compatriot whose sense of news and fairness was a cut above the rest,” said Mokonyane.

The premier, in a statement issued this afternoon, called Rossouw a “gutsy journalist who took great care in putting issues into context in her reporting”.

She paid special tribute to Rossouw as a young woman journalist who was a trailblazer in many respects.
