Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf died in Dubai on Sunday after suffering from a long-term amyloidosis. He is 79 years old.

In August 2008, he announced his resignation and later that year went into self-imposed exile following a legal case against the country’s constitution. Over the next few years, he went on to travel to many countries, speaking at various institutions.

He initially split between London and Dubai, but eventually settled in the emirate until his last breath in the early hours of Sunday.

He moved to Dubai in 2013-14 and lives in an apartment in the downtown area of ​​the emirate. He was politically active in Dubai to keep his party, the All Pakistan Muslim League, active for elections.

Musharraf was later diagnosed with amyloidosis, a rare disease that occurs when a protein called amyloid builds up in organs. This amyloid buildup can make organs not function properly and affect the heart, kidneys, liver, spleen, nervous system and digestive tract. As a result, his political activities took a back seat as his health deteriorated.

During his nearly nine-year stay in Dubai, Musharraf struggled to keep his All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) afloat through various events and projects organized by the party in Dubai. However, he withdrew from politics due to his deteriorating health from 2017-18.

Due to his health and precautions against the coronavirus outbreak, from 2019 onwards his meetings were mainly limited to his close relatives.

He also faced a setback when his mother, Zarin Musharraf, died in Dubai in January 2021. Musharraf was said to be very close to his mother and her death was a big blow to him.

Zarin was buried in Dubai amid challenges in transporting her remains back to Pakistan due to Covid-19 travel restrictions and health concerns over the ex-president’s visit to his mother’s funeral.

After he left the country, many of his political branches joined other parties. He is survived by a wife, a son and a daughter.
