Mubarak's health failing

2012-06-05 17:50

Cairo - An Egyptian security official says ousted president Hosni Mubarak's health has deteriorated in the three days since a court sentenced him to life imprisonment in connection to the killing of protesters.

The official at Cairo's Torah prison said that Mubarak collapsed several times on Tuesday, and that he was placed on mechanical ventilation after having difficulty breathing. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to the press.

Mubarak was sentenced on Saturday for failing to stop killings of protesters in the 2011 uprising that drove him from power.

From his arrest 13 months ago until his conviction, he has been in hospitals, first in his favourite Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik and later at a suite in a military hospital on the outskirts of Cairo.

    Hmm, funny how these bastards health always deteriorate after they got what they derserve for oppressing and stealing from their people. When they were in office, they were like spring chickens or shall we say, piglets running around and feeding from the trough but oh boy, they get caught the develope the most life threatning illnesses. Just die your bastard, this world will be a better place without you!

      They shouldn't die, they should live as long as possible just to experience what they did to their own people. Just like Selebi, Charles Taylor, Mdluli, Cele, Assad and wife and there are a few others who fit this position. Have you noticed that they are not the most intelligent ones? It is worth the money, trust me. I think it is called Karma.
