IYASA founding member Sibonisiwe Sithole, has died.
Confirming the sad news to the media, Iyasa director Nkululeko Dube said Sithole died yesterday morning at United Bulawayo Hospital after a short illness.

Sithole’s death comes barely a week after the music industry lost another talented musician in the form of hiphop star and producer Mgcini Nhliziyo better known as Cal_Vin who was involved in a hit and run car accident near
his home in Luveve 5 last Sunday.
Meanwhile, artists have launched a campaign under the hashtag JusticeForCalVin meant to hunt down the person who killed Cal_Vin. “Please help us get #JusticeForCalVin. He was run over by a white car possibly a
Madza Familia, in Luveve 5.
If anyone has any information please come forward. Even if you’re not too sure but your gut feeling tells you
your neighbour’s car seems off or has been idle since Sunday but it’s usually moving, Just anything really. The car is missing a mud guard and should have dents on the bonnet from the impact.
We are also appealing to the panel beaters if anything seems off please come forward.
“Bulawayo is too small someone must know something. Considering that they were a number of people in the car that ran him over,” reads part of the statement from Bulawayo-based musician Michael Kata.
