What I would say directly to the president...

A 70-year-old Alexandria resident has this message for the president: “You have plundered the country, leaving nothing to the poor. We do not want this government in place; we want a fair government.” Noura Muhammad, a 35-year-old beggar from Aswan, said she has three children and could not find a job, so she had to go begging together with her nine-year-old daughter, Nagafa. Asked what she would tell the president if she met him, she smiled and said sarcastically, “Why should I meet him? Will his guards let me meet him? They would kill me [if I tried].”
