She affirmed that the Late Karima Zaidani has always been a model of patriotism, competence, seriousness, dedication, good morals, respect, modesty and professionalism, which, she noted has earned her the love, appreciation and respect from all and was selected as Pioneer of Television Media during the First Forum for Women in the Media, hosted by the kingdom in 2008.
The Minister of State prayed to Allah Almighty to rest the soul of the late Mrs. Karima Zaidani in eternal peace and grant her family, relatives and colleagues patience and consolation.
