Loving wife, devoted mother and beacon of excellence – politicians on veteran journalist

President Nangolo Mbumba has extended a message of condolence to the family of the late veteran journalist and news editor of Republikein Ronelle Rademeyer.

Rademeyer died on Monday after a long battle with cancer.

She is remembered as a passionate public interest journalist who played a pivotal role in the advancement of the media and journalistic landscape in Namibia.

Mbumba says Rademeyer will be remembered for her commitment to a culture of ethics in journalism and press freedom.

“Even though the Presidency and the government have lost a valuable partner in the media landscape, we find comfort in the invaluable contributions of Rademeyer in the development of journalism and a professional press corps in Namibia.

“On behalf of the people and the government of the Republic of Namibia, I extend my sincere condolences to her husband, the children, the family and her media colleagues.

“May God comfort the family and media profession during this period of bereavement,” he said.

Venaani says Rademeyer’s passion for journalism and her commitment to truth and integrity were evident in her work and the high standards she set in the industry.

“As secretary general of the Namibia Editor’s Forum, Rademeyer’s leadership was characterised by integrity, wisdom and a deep-seated sense of responsibility to the journalistic community.

“Her efforts in fostering excellence and ethical standards within the profession have left a lasting legacy that will continue to resonate for years to come, and as one of the organisers of the EFN Journalism Awards since 2018,” he says.

“Beyond her professional accomplishments, Ms Rademeyer was revered and cherished as a loving wife and devoted mother. Venaani extended his thoughts and prayers to the family on behalf of the Popular Democratic Movement.

“Rest in peace, Rademeyer, your legacy will forever be etched in the annals of Namibian journalism,” he said.
