Simbarashe “Simba” Sithole (born 5 May 1989 in Masvingo) is a Zimbabwean footballer who is currently a free agent. He plays for the Zimbabwe national team.
Sithole began his career in Zimbabwe with How Mine, before subsequently joining Monomotapa United, Railstars and Hippo Valley. After spells with the aforementioned three clubs, Sithole rejoined How Mine. His return to How Mine led to a move to South African football.

Eight months later he left Ajax to return to Zimbabwe to play for Highlanders, however he left the Bulawayo-based club soon after. A short stint with Bulawayo City followed.
Sithole scored his first international goal for the Zimbabwe national team in a 2014 African Nations Championship qualifier against Mauritius. He appeared for Zimbabwe against Gabon on 6 January 2014, and he scored his second goal for his country on 25 January 2014 against Mali.
