Wiseman Khuzwayo
Wiseman's name says it all. He was a man with wisdom; a warm, loving person, that eagerly shared his passion, knowledge and love, never expected anything in return. His heart and home was always open, and should you visit him at home, you left after sharing a meal prepared for a king. Wiseman was, and will always be, our leader.

We shall miss him, but we know that his soul rests in peace. My thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues. I wish them strength during this very sad time. - Adri Senekal de Wet: Executive Editor: Independent Media.

Rest in peace, Wiseman. You’ve earned it many times over. Your calm demeanour, spiced with humour and staunch assertiveness on issues close to your heart, will be missed. Sincere condolences to your family. - Roy Cokayne: senior Independent Media business reporter

I will remember Bra Wisey for his dedication to journalism. Despite his strong and brave battle with poor health, he soldiered on. He took each day on his stride, rarely complained. I truly admired his commitment and tenacity. - Siseko Njobeni: senior Independent Media business reporter

Bra Wisey, unfortunately I didn’t get an opportunity to interact with you because of working in a different office from yours. But having followed your struggles with cancer over the last two years or so, and how you fought a good fight until the end, it gives me an idea about what kind of a man you were. Rest in peace Mnguni, and condolences to your friends and family in this difficult time. - Sandile Mchunu, Independent Media business reporter

Ntate Wiseman Khuzwayo’s death is a reminder to me that we best do what we really want to do as we go through life. In the few times I was privileged to talk to him, I found him to be genuinely a good man who believed, worked and excelled in a difficult and troubled world. He remains a credit to this noble profession and a lodestar to some of us. I shall remember him for what he achieved in his lifetime. I have truly benefited immensely from the quality and integrity of his work. Goodbye Wiseman and thank you. Condolences to the Khuzwayo family, his friends and BR team for losing their foremost intellect. - Kabelo Khumalo, Independent Media business reporter

I am deeply saddened by news of the passing of Wiseman Khuzwayo, who was one of the most dedicated journalists I ever worked with. He was also one of the most considerate and caring human beings I have known. I first met Wiseman in London in 1984 when he was in exile in the UK and wrote for the Rand Daily Mail and newspapers in the then SAAN group.. His commitment to journalism saw him through some challenging times in his personal life. I will always remember him with great fondness. - John Battersby: Ambassador for global peace at The Tutu Foundation, UK.

A very humble man, full of wisdom, a great sense of humour, and knowledgeable in the craft of writing a good analysis. South African journalism is poorer without Wiseman Khuzwayo. Rest in peace. - Kenneth Chikanga: Independent Media Solutions.
