CAIRO – 26 January 2020: Fugitive Egyptian businessman Mohammed Ali posted a video on Saturday, in which he announced that he quit politics to return to his business and acting career after his protest call failed to draw any followers among the Egyptian people.
“Today was crucial for me, there is a possibility that my point of view is wrong, no masses took to the street,” said the fugitive businessman. “I apologize to the Egyptian people, the answer was revealed today, I might be wrong and you are right, as you think that the country’s ruling is correct, this is the people agreeing to the existence of the regime,” added Ali in the video he posted to address the Egyptian people.
The fugitive businessman has previously called the Egyptian people to protest on the anniversary of the January 25 revolution. However, his invitation was disregarded as the streets were empty on Saturday.
