Last Night’s Talk Shows on 30 December 2020

It was a mixed bag of nuts on the airwaves last night, with no single story — aside from covid-19 warnings and updates — leading the conversation.

The Great Natural Gas Transition Plan will officially kick off at the beginning of next month, when President Abdel Fattah El Sisi is set to launch the campaign that aims to take some 250k old cars off the road and outfitted with dual-fuel engines by 2023, Trade and Industry Minister Nevine Gamea told Ala Mas’ouleety’s Ahmed Moussa yesterday (watch, runtime: 4:17).

Egyptian expats who have been stuck in transit in the UAE, Turkey, and Oman on their way to Kuwait will soon be able to complete their journey as Kuwait plans to reopen its airspace on 2 January, Emigration Minister Nabila Makram Ebeid told Moussa. The ministry has been helping out the stranded citizens with accommodations while waiting for flights to resume, the minister noted (watch, runtime: 10:25).

Elsewhere, the “Decent Life” initiative, which was rolled out at the beginning of 2019, earned airtime for its accomplishments from Al Hayah Al Youm’s Lobna Assal (watch, runtime: 29:17).
