News from Felix Phiri in Egypt


Felix Phiri 03The situation is still volatile here in Egypt. The political process towards democracy seems to be holding a lot of surprises for the now disillusioned Egyptians. Apart from some flash points here and there especially on Fridays, life continues with a lot of difficulties for most of the people. The cost of living seems to have increased beyond the reach of many and the new government of the Muslim Brothers is still struggling not only to pacify the masses but also to stabilize the economic situation. The relations between Christians and Muslims seem relatively less tense than soon after the departure of Mubarak. However, the future remains unpredictable.
