A rhumba dancer for Mxolisi “Mr Bones” Ndlovu and Garamtata’s Finest was stabbed to death by his girlfriend during a fight last night.
Mr Bones confirmed the death of Mthabisi “Mavikintuthu” Sibanda from Skente village in Tsholotsho saying he was heartbroken. He told The Chronicle:
They’d been having challenges with his girlfriend and I sat him down and spoke to him so I thought all was well. The latest fight which I understand was very bad was over a phone and it, unfortunately, ended with Mavikintuthu being stabbed to death.
This has happened at a very bad time as we’re preparing to launch our eighth album on 4 October. Mavikintuthu was a very disciplined someone and he’s been with me through thick and thin. Losing him in this manner is heartbreaking. I’m at a loss of what to say or do at the moment.
Sibanda’s death follows the death of Sadam Ncube who was a dancer for Rhumba artist Mandlenkosi Godolude Mpofu.
Ncube was burnt beyond recognition in South Africa with two other Zimbabweans over allegations of robbing and killing a shop owner.
