Broadcaster and political commentator Eusebius McKaiser has been found dead in Johannesburg.
His manager, Jackie Strydom confirmed the news of his death.
“Unfortunately, I can confirm that it is true. He died earlier this afternoon in Joburg.”
Strydom told TimesLive that it’s suspected that the 45-year-old died after suffering an epileptic seizure.
Vincent Magwenya, President Cyril Ramaphosa’s spokesperson, said McKaiser was “a brilliant mind”.
Magwena tweeted: “I followed his work, and I enjoyed his shows and interviews when he was at 702. He brought his own signature style to the radio. Condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. May his soul rest in peace.”
Herman Mashaba, ActionSA’s leader tweeted that McKaiser was “a bright young man”:
“Eusebius’ death has shaken me. Such a bright young man was taken so soon. He recently attended one of my breakfast sessions & as usual, the debates were robust & intellectually stimulating. He was someone I know would play a vital role in fixing this country. May he rest in peace.”
