The DA family in Limpopo is still reeling in shock after learning the untimely death Daniel Matome Modiba, a members of the Limpopo Youth Orchestra.

Modiba met his sudden death last Tuesday 23 September during the group’s international tour to Dakar, Senegal where without a doubt, Limpopo and the Republic of South Africa was well represented.

In this case, not only his family but the international community of music has lost a brave young man whose future was yet to bless Limpopo people in many ways.

According to LYO, Modiba was a fantastic trumpeter who was loved by all in his peer circles both in music and in his personal life.

The DA extends its sincere condolences, particularly to his mother, Mme Modiba, the rest of the family and  his friends.

As DA we also call on the entire Limpopo to include the family in prayers for God to shower them with the strength that they need at this time of bereavement.

We must also acknowledge the care and assistance that devastated LYO received in arranging a

tribute concert in memory of Modiba  which took place at the SA Ambassador to Senegal’s residence in Dakar.

Emotional support must also be extended to the rest of LYO members and management to deal with the state of affairs at their hands.
