Today, the 25th of February 2020, the former President of the Republic of Egypt, Mohammed Hosni Mubarak, passed away at the age of 91.
Earlier today, there were several rumors on Twitter and other social media outlets about the news and it was finally confirmed just over an hour ago.
In late January of this year, Mubarak had undergone surgery, but Lawyer Farid Al-Dib informed various news outlets that the former president was in a stable condition.
In the aftermath of the 1952 Revolution, and the abolition of the monarchy, Mubarak is considered the fourth president to preside over the rule in Egypt; he remained in power for 30 years until the January 25 Revolution, wherein on the 11th of February, 2011 he was ousted and put on trial on charges of killing protesters and corruption. In the years that followed, he was acquitted of all charges.
Last October, Mubarak made his last public appearance after releasing a video on a YouTube channel entitled ‘The Mubarak Archives’, in which he spoke for 25 minutes about his memories of the 6th October 1973 War.
