LONDON – President Mamnoon Hussain and his wife met with former first lady Kulsoom Nawaz in London.

He visited Harley Street Clinic to inquire about the health of Kulsoom Nawaz.

Hussain Nawaz received the president and his wife at the clinic.

It is pertinent here to mention that Begum Kulsoom Nawaz is undergoing treatment for throat cancer in London’s Harley Street Clinic.

She was put on life support after the former first lady was admitted to the hospital where she suffered a cardiac arrest. She has been unconscious and on the life support since then.

The former premier’s wife was diagnosed with lymphoma - a cancer of the lymph nodes - in August last year. She has since undergone several sessions of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Initially she showed signs of improvement but as of late her condition has deteriorated.

Kulsoom Nawaz was elected to the National Assembly of Pakistan for the first time in by-polls held in September last year. She filled the seat that fell vacant after her husband, Nawaz Sharif, was disqualified by the Supreme Court in the Panama Papers case.
