A night of random stuff on Last Night’s Talk Shows

With television power couple Lamees Al Hadidi and Amr Adib off the airwaves last night, the talking heads served us a random assortment of … not much.

Interim EGX head Mohsen Adel told Yahduth fi Masr’s Sherif Amer that his focus during his (temporary) tenure will be on ramping up IPO activity and roping in more foreign investors, following Investment and International Cooperation Minister Sahar Nasr’s directives.

Over on Masaa’ DMC, host Osama Kamal zeroed in on the recently established SupremeAnti-Terrorism Council. Security expert and council member Khaled Okasha gave Kamal a rundown of the council’s mandate, telling him that it will coordinate between the various entities working to combat terrorism and extremist thought (watch, runtime 4:23).

Agriculture Minister Abdel Moneim El Banna to go on about an EGP 400 mn livestockproject. Breeders will have access to subsidized financing under the trial program (watch, runtime: 8:16).

Finally, a video making the rounds on social media purportedly showing train drivers smoking illicit substances while on duty took center stage on Mehwar TV’s 90 Minutes. The deputy chair of the House Transport Committee used the video to take a potshot (pun only semi-intended — it’s been one of those weeks) at Egyptian National Railways (watch, runtime 9:13).
