Egypt’s role in Africa, vocational training at Zagazig University on last night’s talk shows

It was a rather bland night on the nation’s airwaves, with few noteworthy topics other than Egypt’s emerging role in Africa and the inauguration of new facilities at Zagazig University.

The internet and social media and the laws governing them took up the majority of Al Hayah Al Youm’s episode last night, with host Khaled Abu Bakr sitting down with a data protection expert to discuss cyber crimes and the Data Protection Act, among other topics (watch, runtime: 3:21). Abu Bakr also had an extensive conversation about the dangers of social media (watch, runtime: 25:47).

Egypt’s most valuable contribution to Africa boils down to health and education, former Egyptian diplomat and politician Mostafa El Fekki told Yahduth Fi Misr’s Sherif Amer in their weekly Wednesday pow wow (watch, runtime: 1:07). El Fekki praised President Abdel Fattah El Sisi’s recent initiative to treat Hepatitis C in African countries, and urged politicians to use soft power such as culture and music to deepen our ties with the rest of the continent (watch, runtime: 0:44).

The inauguration of three AUC-backed vocational training facilities at Zagazig University earned some airtime on DMC (watch, runtime: 2:18). Financing for the new facilities came from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
