Covid-19 has given DEATH another celebrated personality to put 6 feet below the ground.

I just thought I'd check in with you, my friends. I found out today that you have passed away. This is something my heart doesn't want to believe. It's not possible. You stood up for me when I needed it the most. When I was going through the hardest, he called to check on me. I've come to terms with the fact that you're no longer with us. Following the passing of Ragani Achary, also known as Rags, eNCA Journalist Heidi Giokos delivered a devastating statement. Rags was a Deputy News Editor at ETV but was working as a News Editor for SABC at the time of her death. Rags, according to Heidi, was a brilliant journalist who was always prepared to mentor younger journalists.

She was always eager to assist. "Your passing has left me heartbroken. I wish you eternal peace and hope for comfort and serenity for your family "Heidi went on to say.

Covid19 has claimed the lives of several journalists, and Rags is the most recent to fall victim to the infection. When it came to media, the award-winning journalist was a jack of all trades. She alternated between reading the news and presenting on the radio.
