KARACHI: Former Sindh governor and ex-chief minister Mumtaz Bhutto passed away Sunday.
As per his spokesperson, Bhutto had been ill for a while. He died at age 94 at his Karachi residence.
Bhutto was a close aide of former prime minister and PPP founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.
His body will be sent to Larkana at 6pm for funeral prayers, revealed his spokesperson.
Bhutto, after developing differences with the PPP, had formed his own party, the Sindh National Front (SNF). In 2017, he announced that the SNF had merged with the PTI.
