Elvis Nyathi’s mother says she will find it hard to come to terms with her son’s cruel murder in South Africa last week.
Sithembile Sibanda was speaking to the media Thursday night in Nkulumane 12, Bulawayo where mourners are gathered.
Sibanda said it will take her a very long time to find closure, if ever, on the tragic event.
“I don’t know why they killed my son. Elvis just wanted to fend for his family and was doing so legally. Now my son is no more and I won’t even be able to see his body yet he left Zimbabwe alive. He has left behind three little kids and a wife. What did I do to deserve this?” said a visibly distraught Sibanda.
The late Nyathi’s remains arrived in Bulawayo Friday morning ahead of burial.
Nyathi died a cruel death in the hands of a South African vigilante group that stormed his home outside Johannesburg last week to carry out the gruesome act which was linked to xenophobia.
No arrests have been made as yet.
His killing has been met with wide condemnation both in South Africa and in Zimbabwe.
