Last Night’s Talk Shows on 30 March 2021

Now that the Suez Canal debacle is behind us, it’s time for the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam to take center stage again. Or at least that’s what El Hekaya’s Amr Adib thinks is going to (and should) happen now, saying that the Ever Given was a temporary distraction from our ongoing crisis with Ethiopia (watch, runtime: 1:32).

The international community needs to step up and intervene to mediate between Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopia to reach a binding agreement on filling and operating the dam, international law professor Mofeed Shehab told Adib. He suggested that Egypt has wide international backing in its position on the matter, since we have been patient and remained committed for a full decade to negotiations and a peaceful resolution to the matter (watch, runtime: 5:44).

Also getting attention on the airwaves: The upcoming royal mummy parade, which will see the transfer of 22 mummies from the Egyptian Museum in Tahrir to the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization in Fustat. The transfer is meant to help alleviate some of the overcrowding at the Tahrir Museum, where artefacts aren’t getting the attention they deserve due to the lack of space, Tourism Minister Khaled Anany told Kelma Akhira’s Lamees El Hadidi (watch, runtime: 1:03). Anany also briefed Ala Mas’ouleety’s Ahmed Moussa on the parade (watch, runtime: 11:47).
