Gamal Mubarak faints at NDP General Secretariat meeting

According to Ikhwan Web, Gamal Mubarak fainted for five minutes prior to a NDP General Secretariat meeting earlier today. He´s condition is not life threating in any way, he has an acute influenza, due to malnutrition and exhaustion and was ordered two days of complete rest by the doctors.

He is reported to have worked tirelessly lately with preparations for the major constitutional amendments,that passed parliament yesterday and will be presented to the people in a referendum on March 26th.

The Wedding
The report also tells us that he is due to leave for Paris to go furniture hunting, presumably with his wife to be, Khadija. The couple are expected to tie the knot during the summer. Let´s hope for a speedy recovery and a beautiful time in the most romantic city in the world apart from Cairo.

The wedding will be biggest social gathering for years in Egypt, and local and foreign dignitaries alike are expected to attend.

Gamal Mubarak is the undersecretary of the NDP and chairman of the influential policy committee.

UPDATE: This is fellow blogger Ahmad Sherif´s take on Gamal Mubaraks trip to the city of lights. Dosen´t it look a little bit like Loius Farouk, or is it Louis Gamal?

UPDATE II: On the second of April, the independent Egyptian daily Masry al youm carried the long anticipated news for a wedding date. The religious cermony will take place in Cairo on the 28th of April and the wedding party will be in Sharm al Shaikh, The Mubarak family´s home away from Korba. Both the religious cermony and the wedding party will be attended by family and close friends only, and will coincide with the President´s 79th birthday.

Here is a reuters news wire in english(via the Egyptian edition of Daily Star).

UPDATE III: Here is a brand new article from AP journalist Maggie Michael on the political aspects of the upcoming union between the love birds.

I hope that he stays forever with his wife in Paris. Why not it is a great city less polluted than Cairo. Furniture from Paris? why not from Menofya where dady used to sit on the pench watching the cows passing by!! Enough is enough! Egyptians can not afford to buy food, medicine to survive and these thieves are stealing our future!
