Last Saturday marked the sixth anniversary of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s ouster.
A phone call was made from a Kuwaiti number to Mubarak around noon time, according to Egyptian media reports.
A journalist is believed to have made the call and asked the former president: “On the sixth anniversary of your ouster, what would you like to say to the Egyptian people?”
To that, Mubarak asked: “Are you a journalist?”
The voice said “yes.” Mubarak then said: “I’d tell the Egyptians I wish you many happy returns!”
The alleged journalist then asked: “What is your assessment of President [Abdelfattah] al-Sisi?”
Mubarak abruptly said: “It is not for me to evaluate anyone … each person has their own style of work.”
He then is believed to have ended the call.
