Kick442.com is gathering at the moment that Egypt is in shock just four days before the AFCON as former president, Mohammed Morsi has passed away after fainting in a courtroom during a trail session.
The one time ‘big gun’ was sent parking by the military in 2013 just one year after taking office and has remained within sights from then till now, charged with espionage. He has ‘kicked the bucket’ today Monday 17, 2019, four nights before the AFCON to be staged in the country he once called the shots for.
Morsi is remembered mostly as a villain given his affiliations with the unpopular Muslim brotherhood that was eventually disrupted by Egyptian authorities.
Morsi dies aged 67 today.
Though his lifestyle and treatment of the people was considered to be dictatorial, the former president definitely had some supporters_moreso, the Egyptian population wanted Justice but did not want it to end this way for their one time leader.
The African continent should expect to see the black bands on the arms of Egyptian players in the opener of the AFCON that comes up on Friday 21, in a game pitting Egypt against Zimbabwe. How far would this go to affect the hosting of the football jamboree? Well, it is a rhetoric and only time would tell.
