The government’s focus on preparing the new administrative capital comes at Cairo’s expense

The government is focusing all its efforts on preparing the new administrative capital and neglecting Cairo in the process, Soliman Gouda says in Al Masry Al Youm. The current capital’s issues are piling up but have been unaddressed, as it appears that the new capital is a much bigger priority. Gouda centers his argument on the introduction of double-decker buses, which he says are ill-fitted for Cairo’s narrow and pothole-littered roads, and will only offer a view of dilapidated and dirty buildings.
