Last Night’s Talk Shows: Toshka, revived

The talking heads were focused on the revival of the Toshka megaproject as President Abdel Fattah El Sisi inaugurated the first 100k feddan phase of the land reclamation project yesterday. The project, which was initially conceived during Mubarak’s presidency, had already taken some EGP 6 bn of infrastructure investments from state coffers before being scrapped for not being economically viable, Kelma Akhira’s Lamees El Hadidi (watch, runtime: 4:38) and El Hekaya’s Amr Adib (watch, runtime: 6:38) noted.

Both Lamees and Adib lauded the Sisi administration for reviving the project and making use of the sunken cost from previous administrations. The story was also at the top of the agenda for Ala Mas’ouleety’s Ahmed Moussa (watch, runtime: 28:22) and Al Hayah Al Youm’s Mohamed Sherdy (watch, runtime: 1:31).
