Three-time Pakistan first lady Kulsoom Nawaz dies: Party

ISLAMABAD: Kulsoom Nawaz, the wife of former Pakistan prime minister Nawaz Sharif, died of cancer in London yesterday as her husband remains locked up in jail in his home country following his fall from power, reports AFP.

Nawaz, 68, who was first lady of Pakistan three times, was diagnosed with lymphoma in August last year and had been receiving treatment at a private hospital in London for months.

“Yes, the death of Begum Kulsoom Nawaz is confirmed,” Maryam Aurangzeb, a spokesperson of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Sharif’s party, told AFP.

Pakistani media reported that she had been put on life support and ventilator earlier in the day. Sharif was ousted from the premiership a month before his wife’s diagnosis.

He and the couple’s daughter Maryam Nawaz had left her in London and returned to Pakistan on July 13 this year in a bid to motivate support for the PML-N days before a general election.

They were immediately jailed for corruption, with the party losing the July 25 election to Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

Sharif had been banned from running, but maintained his control over his eponymous party, and his return was seen as a failed gamble to save his political legacy.
