An Egyptian man named Hamam approached Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi during his visit to Upper Egypt this week and convinced him to grant his town 1,000 acres of land.
Addressing Sisi who was at a gathering while on the tour, Hamam explained he was the only man from the town of Marashdeh, one of the poorest towns in the governorate of Qena, adding that he wanted to present his case.
Sisi replied to Hamam and asked him to go ahead and tell him what he wants.
Hamam thus approached the president and said: “Our poverty does not mean we do not love you but we must tell you the truth of what’s happening. I am the only one from Marashdeh here and I must present my problem.”
