BVTA learns with shock, disbelief, devastation and the sudden passing away of our former Vice President Ms Blessed Sibanda who died this morning after a thief hit her whilst she was raising alarm that the thief was stealing at their work station at corner Fife Street and 5th Avenue in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. She fell on her head and died on the spot. Our beloved VP leaves behind two children. She was a very hard working, a torch bearer and a beacon of our Association who joined BVTA as an ordinary vendor and had done wonderful work to transform her life and family. She was currently holding the Business Development Portfolio in the organization. We will advise where people are gathered for mourning in due course.
