A bland night on the airwaves ahead of Lamees’ return next week

It was a quiet night on the airwaves.

The Administrative Prosecution Authority (APA) proposed that Egypt make a full switch to electronically-operated railway networks. In a report yesterday, the APA said that the installation of train tracking radars, communication networks, and electronic signaling systems should boost safety and enhance the service’s efficiency. The APA’s Saeed Khalil told Masaa DMC that the report focused on identifying the network’s deficiencies and determine if negligence had been a cause in a train derailment in Giza last month (watch, runtime: 3:45).

Ten railway officials have been called in for questioning on charges of “negligence and failure to enforce supervision” related to the incident, Ahram Online reports.

Small business and the economy: German small business expert Christoph Hoffmann appeared on Masaa DMC to chat with host Osama Kamal about the importance of small businesses to the economy. He also talked about Egyptian-German relations, noting that both countries are working together on projects in fields such as education (watch, runtime: 17: 29).

Want to make someone happy? Build them a ministry: Egypt should consider establishing a ministry dedicated solely to African affairs as a way of demonstrating its commitment to the continent, State Information Services Africa expert Ramadan Oweiss suggested to Al Hayah fi Misr’s Kamal Mady. He said the move would put an end to accusations that Egypt has long neglected its African neighbors (watch, runtime: 26:00).

The Armed Forces anti-terror operations in North Sinai were the topic of discussion on Al Hayah fi Misr (watch, runtime: 6:21) and Masaa DMC (watch, runtime: 5:00).

Cabinet spokesperson Ashraf Sultan also phoned into Al Hayah fi Misr to discuss the results of the ministers’ weekly meeting yesterday (watch, runtime: 6:20), which we have chapter and verse on in the Speed Round, below.

Meanwhile, in anticipation of Lamees Al Hadidi’s return to the screen on Saturday, Hona Al Asema replayed parts of previous episodes (watch, runtime: 00:30).
