Passing of Esteemed Journalists

In a somber turn of events, the North West province is mourning the untimely passing of two prominent journalists who were once part of the SABC News – North West Region team. Bobby Serame, a seasoned radio journalist, and Moleboheng Khaeane, a talented video journalist, both made significant contributions to the media landscape in the province. Their sudden departures have left the community shocked and devastated.

Bobby Serame, aged 53, was a respected figure in the realm of radio journalism, boasting an impressive career spanning over two decades. He dedicated his life to informing the public and was known for his insightful reporting. Last year, he made a transition to Mahikeng FM, where he continued to make a difference through his work.

Moleboheng Khaeane, just 33 years old, was an exceptional video journalist and one of the few female professionals in her field within the province. She made a notable impact during her three-year tenure with SABC News – North West Region before moving on to join the SABC News Free State Region.

The circumstances surrounding their deaths were equally heart-wrenching. Bobby Serame succumbed to ill-health, marking the end of a prolific career in journalism that had undoubtedly touched countless lives. Moleboheng Khaeane’s passing, on the other hand, resulted from a tragic car accident, casting a dark cloud over the journalistic community in the region.

Upon receiving the news of their demise, the Acting Premier of North West, Nono Maloyi, expressed deep shock and sorrow. Acting Premier Maloyi acknowledged the vital role journalists play in disseminating information to the public, especially in matters concerning government programs and initiatives addressing socio-economic challenges.

“Members of the media are critical government stakeholders, and without them, we are unable to reach and share information regarding government services to our people,” remarked Acting Premier Maloyi. “Both Serame and Khaeane contributed immensely in empowering our people with information that can better their lives. May their souls find eternal rest. My condolences to their families, friends, and colleagues.”

The loss of these two talented journalists leaves a void in the media landscape of the North West province. Their dedication to truth and accuracy, their passion for storytelling, and their commitment to keeping the public informed will be sorely missed.

As the news of their passing spreads throughout the region, tributes pour in from fellow journalists, government officials, and the public, all sharing fond memories of their interactions with Bobby Serame and Moleboheng Khaeane. Their legacy will undoubtedly live on, as their work has left an indelible mark on the hearts and minds of those they touched.

The North West province is in mourning, and the entire media community stands in solidarity with the families and loved ones of these remarkable journalists during this difficult time. As we remember and celebrate the lives of Bobby Serame and Moleboheng Khaeane, we are reminded of the invaluable role journalism plays in our society, keeping us informed, empowered, and connected.

In their memory, may the pursuit of truth and journalistic integrity continue to shine brightly in the North West, inspiring the next generation of media professionals to carry the torch and make a positive impact on society through their work.
