Southern African Editors Forum pays tribute to veteran journalist Rademeyer


The Southern African Editors Forum says it's mourning the death of Ronelle Rademeyer, aged 56.

The Southern African Editors Forum says Rademeyer was instrumental in organising the EFN Journalism Awards from 2018 to 2023.

It says she also stabilised the finances of the EFN through her persuasion of Namibian industry executives to support good and ethical journalism.

Rademeyer was also part of the team that revised the current Code of Ethics for Namibian Print, Broadcast, and Online Media.
