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.
