University of Zimbabwe academic and political commentator, John Makumbe, has died.

MDC-T spokesman Douglas Mwonzora confirmed that Makumbe, who was planning to run as a member of parliament, died at Arcadia Medical Centre in Harare on Sunday morning after suffering a suspected heart attack.

He is survived by his wife, Virginia, and five children.

Late last year, the University of Zimbabwe professor announced he was going to take a break from teaching to contest in the forthcoming general elections as an MDC-T candidate for Buhera West constituency in Manicaland province.

Mwonzora confirmed the news to SW Radio adding that he was a technical adviser for the MDC-T party.
