Veteran broadcaster Ezra Tshisa Sibanda has reported that children of the slain Elvis Nyathi have been assisted by government to kick start the process of acquiring birth certificates.

In a Facebook post, Sibanda said, "Thank you Minister of State, Bulawayo Metropolitan Province Judith Ncube and Bulawayo Registrar's Office, for your help. The birth certificates of the late Elvis Mbhodazwe Nyathi's children are being processed."

Earlier this month Sibanda had identified the following children whom he said have no boirth certificates; Melusi 18, Khumbulani 16, Sindisiwe 14, Mike who is in grade 6.

Sibanda appealed to all well wishers to assist the Nyathi  family in building a home for  them at the Ntabazinduna stand that they own .

"My appeal to all of you, lets help build a home for Elvis's family ASAP. We have seen the stand and it's there in Ntabazinduna, what is left is just building a house. Together we can do it. Thank you to everybody who contributed towards the funeral.

"We still call upon those who haven't sent the cash they collected from people on behalf of the family to please contact the family and give them the money for the children. Mrs Elvis' Zim bank account will be availed soon."

Nyathi was killed by members of the extremist xenophobic vigilante group Operation Dudula which is supported by some South African ministers and senior ANC leaders.
