He was discharged from the hospital earlier this month after being there for three months after the fire. There's also a new picture of him in the article.

    Political Frailty

    https://www.svt.se/kultur/tidigare-kulturministern-bengt-goransson-ar-dod Former Swedish minister and politician Bengt Göransson dead at 88. He was the Minister of Culture and Education 1982-1989 and only Minister of Education 1989-1991 after Bengt Göransson became the Minister for Schools. He was part of Olof Palme's cabinet. Palme was assasinated while walking home from a cinema on the 28th of February 1986. Lots of Palme ministers still alive, but I don't think there are ministers alive from before Palme's first cabinet.

    Political Frailty

    Bangladesh has a lot of good political picks: Three former President amigos Shahabuddin Ahmed (b. 1930), Badruddoza Chowdhury (b. 1932) and Muhammad Jamiruddin Sircar (b. 1931) As drol said, Shahabuddin has been gravely ill for years, Chowdhury looks corpse-like in most new photos and Sircar suffered a stroke two years ago. Former Prime Ministers: Fazlul Haque (b. 1938) and Fakhruddin Ahmed (b. 1940), Ahmed still looks great though. Current leaders, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina and President Abdul Hamid are 73 and 77.

    Kenneth Kaunda

    Funeral attending bets (unless they'll have an only-family funeral): Zambian Presidents: Rupiah Banda: Will probably attend. Visited a cigarette factory a while ago so I would be suprised if he didn't attend a former president's funeral. Guy Scott: Probably won't. If he does, he'll either use a rollator or more likely will be in a wheelchair. Edgar Lungu: Collapsed in some kind of an event four days ago but I'm sure he will attend the founding president's funeral. Out of African political ancient ones, I'd say Mwinyi and Nujoma will attend. Unless covid something.
