Former Zimbabwean government minister Kumbirai Kangai, a close ally of President Robert Mugabe and key leader in the fight to end British rule, died Saturday, a party official said.
"I can confirm that one of our party stalwarts, comrade Kumbirai Kangai, died suddenly this morning," Rugare Gumbo, spokesman for Mugabe's ZANU-PF party, told AFP.
Kangai collapsed at his home and died on admission at a private clinic in the capital. He was 75.
