Two days after both local and foreign media reported on former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s cancer – the attitude amongst the masses has not changed.
In fact, many Egyptians cast doubt upon their ousted leader’s illness which was announced on June 20th.
Some people claim this was used as justification for his previous illnesses – all of which are thought to have been fabricated in a bid to delay court hearings, which, after postponement in April, are scheduled for this month.
Hussein, an angered local resident spoke to Al Arabiya about this heated issue.
"They've been saying for the past three months that Mubarak’s sick and in the end they said he's stable. If he's stable then why wasn't he transferred? Why didn't they move him to prison? Last week they said he was stable, now they're saying he's ill again. We don't know the secret behind the slowness of the trial. Who should we believe? It’s a mystery."
As uncertainty over the long-delayed trial grows, so does the anger, and a feeling of injustice amongst Egypt’s population.
