National University of Science and Technology (Nust) officials had no hand in the death of former Vice Chancellor Professor Lindela  Ndlovu, his son has said.

Ndlovu who died last year in December after a sudden heart attack at Galen House Hospital in Bulawayo is said to have been a stressed man in his last days.

 Ndlovu had vast experience in the higher and tertiary education sector from being a lecturer, researcher, publisher up to being a vice-chancellor.

He was appointed in October 2005 as Nust's second vice-chancellor taking over from Professor Phineas Makhurane.

 Soon after his death, his family accused the NUST leadership of causing his sudden death.

A week before his death, he "learnt from the newspapers" that he had been replaced as Vice Chancellor by Prof Samson Sibanda.

However, during his memorial on Monday, his son  Likhwa Sifiso Ndlovu said his father died a natural death.

"We are Christians. When someone passes on it is simply because their time has come.

" God has a plan for all of us and when His will is done we should not find fault among ourselves.

"That should be the case with our dad. For the record, Nust did not kill our dad. We were deeply saddened by the misinformation and rumours during such a tragic event,".
