News of the South HARARE –    Five people, among them MDC founding member and former Senator Sibangilizwe Msipha (53) died in a horror crash early Thursday morning along N1 highway in Limpopo Province on.

Msipha was on his way to Johannesburg South Africa when the tragedy befell him.

MDC Bulawayo deputy spokesperson Edwin Ndlovu blamed Msipha’s death on Zanu PF saying there would be no need for people to migrate to other countries if they had fixed the economy.




“The party has lost a giant of a man, a loyal cadre who was committed to free people of Zimbabwe from Zanu PF slavery. We blame the loss of Msipha on Zanu PF which only knows how to fix elections and not the economy forcing our brothers and sisters to cross the borders to other countries in search for food for their families.

“Msipha was a cross-border transporter who was trying to provide for his family. Had the Zimbabwe economy been good, Senator Msipha would be alive today working here at home or running a business here in Zimbabwe, but because of this government, our colleague is no more. We mourn with the Msipha family,” Ndlovu said.

Mourners are gathered at house number 389, 9th street Makokoba, Bulawayo.

Ndlovu said Msipha’s body will be repatriated back home on Thursday.

Msipha was the MDC senator for Makokoba from 2006 to 2008 and is survived by his wife Debra and five children. He will be buried at Bulawayo’s Lady Stanley cemetery on Saturday.
