It is with great pain that we share the sad news of the passing on of Cde King Siwela, father of MLO President Cde Paul Siwela.

Cde King Siwela passed on at 04:00  yesterday morning after a long illness. Born on the 30th March 1929 in Kezi, he passed on at ripe age of 91 years.

We know him to be a humble man of a few words and family man who loved his children, grand children and great grand children so dearly. He is survived by 4 children, 18 grand children and 3 great grand children.

As we mourn his passing we find comfort and solace in the fact that he gave us, as MLO and people of Matabeleland at large, the priceless gift ie his son Cde Paul Siwela who is leading Matabeleland independence struggle.

Mourners are gathered at 18 Fourth Avenue Woodville, Bulawayo.

Sadly Cde Paul Siwela who could not attend his mother, Gezephi Dube's funeral, who passed on 3 years ago, would not be able to mourn his father together with family back in Matabeleland because the oppressive Shona supremacist government of Zimbabwe is after his life. He lives with the pain of not being able to mourn his parents and being a refugee in foreign lands.

As we morn with Cde Siwela family, we ask for how long should Matebeles continue to suffer oppression and indignities at the hands of Shona supremacist government of Zimbabwe?

We extend our deepest condolences to the Siwela family and pray that his dear soul rests in peace.
