Egypt’s Ousted president Hosni Mubarak dies at 91

Former Egyptian autocratic President, Hosni Mubarak who served as president from 1981 to 2011 before he was ousted by the military in 2011, has died at age 91.

Mubarak passed away at Cairo’s Galaa military hospital, following reports he had been taken to an intensive care unit following complications from a surgery he underwent last month.

Untill his removal in 1981 in what became known as the Arab Spring revolution,he was under house arrest and suffered from health problems following his ouster and arrest, and his medical state

He was considered far more tolerant than Egypt’s current ruler, Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, despite the political repression as well as a high rate of unemployment, poverty, and corruption under his regime.

Hosni was sentenced to life in prison after he found guilty of complicity in the killing of protesters during the revolution. In 2017, he was acquitted after six years in prison.

He was forced to resign on Feb. 11, 2011, after 18 days of protests, when the Egyptian public poured into the streets by the millions, stripping authority from a man who had been likened to a modern-day pharaoh.

The late autocratic President survived multiple assassination attempts, held power longer than anyone since Muhammad Ali Pasha, the founder of the modern Egyptian state, suppressed a wave of terrorism by Islamic fundamentalists and appeared even to defy the gravity of age.

Egypt’s presidency said in a statement that it mourned Mubarak’s death as a “military leader and war hero” and has offered its condolences to his family.
