VETERAN Radio Zimbabwe broadcaster Sam Sibanda who died on Sunday was yesterday buried at his rural home in Imhukai Village, Mberengwa. Sibanda died in the early hours of Sunday at his home in

Unit N, Chitungwiza, after succumbing to a stroke.
Speaking at the burial, Cain Chikosha, the chief producer of Radio Zimbabwe, said Sibanda left an indelible mark at the station.

"He was an experienced and one of the most-sought-after presenters on Radio Zimbabwe.
"He left a void on radio which will be difficult to fill and we are deeply saddened by his death, may his soul rest in peace," said Chikosha.

The burial was delayed by more than an hour due to heavy rains that pounded Mberengwa affecting thousands of people that had turned up for the funeral.




Also known as Sammy Boy on radio, Sibanda joined the then Rhodesia Broadcasting Corporation in 1975 as a producer/presenter.

After independence in 1980, he rose to fame on the then Radio 2 with his early morning shows, Kwayedza/Kusile that were characterised by his humour.

Sammy Boy also presented a variety of programmes, including "Dzechinyakare", "Rhumba Music" and other discussion programmes.
He is survived by his wife, two children and two grand children.
