When is it hivyo and when hiyo??

can "kwa hivyo" be translated as "that's why'?

yes Also this is an example of implied objects not explicitly mentioned. "Kwa hivyo" or "Kwa hiyo" imply "Kwa (vitu) hivyo" (For these/those things) and "Kwa (maneno - for example) hiyo" (For these/those words... - other objects possible) respectively
