At the time of Egypt’s revolution on the 25th of January 2011 President Hosni Mubarak’s Political Headquarters were torched, leaving to this day an empty, black ghost-like structure.
But a few days ago I read that the new government of Abdel Fattah el Sisi is thinking of tearing it down. But there is opposition by those who think it should stay as symbol of the revolution. No time of an eventual demolition was given. We just have to wait and see – for Cairo’s skyline and the visitors to the Museum I hope that it will not become a symbol of the past – a past that Egyptians might like to forget!
More from Egypt soon
