Lupane East MP Sithembile Gumbo (Zanu-PF) has died.

Gumbo died on Monday night after nearly a week at the United Bulawayo Hospitals where she was treated for injuries suffered in a car accident while going to Harare.

Her death was confirmed by Matabeleland North Minister of State Richard Moyo.

Gumbo, who was also the Zanu-PF women's league secretary in Matabeleland North, one a hotly contested election in July last year, beating 11 other candidates.

She polled 7,875 votes, beating closest challenger Dalumuzi Khumalo of the MDC Alliance who polled 5,791 votes.

Gumbo's death sets the stage for a bruising by-election battle between the main parties.
