Umhlobo Wenene FM’s popular traditional music DJ Saba Mbixane, who died last week on Thursday following a motorbike accident he was involved in earlier in February, will be laid to rest on the 8th of March 2015 in Mount Frere, it has been announced.

Mbixane was involved in a motorbike accident in which he suffered serious head injuries on the 9th of February in Mount Frere. It is reported that he was found lying next to his bike. He was then rushed to hospital, where he spent more than two weeks in a critical condition. He died on the 26th of February at the Nelson Mandela Academic Hospital in Mthatha.

There are multiple memorial services planned for Mbixane. The Eastern Cape government has three memorial services arranged. The first one will be held on Tuesday (3 March) at Nangoza Jebe in Port Elizabeth at 5pm. The second one will be on Wednesday at Skenjana Rojo hall in Bhisho at 12pm. The last and main service will be held at Mthatha stadium on Thursday (5 March) at 9am and will be broadcast live on Umhlobo Wenene FM.  The South African Traditional Music Achievement (SATMA) Awards will also hold a memorial service for Zaw Zaw at the Ethekwini Community Hall in Durban on Wednesday (4 March) at 9:30am. People attending the memorial services were encouraged to wear traditional outfits as Mbixane is known to have promoted the preservation of heritage during his lifetime.

Mbixane will be laid to rest on Sunday in Mandileni, Mount Frere.
