The decision came after Mahlab made an inspection tour to al-Darb al-Ahmar area where he saw piles of garbage accumulated outside an ancient mosque. Mahlab, who expressed his resentment, has ordered Cairo Governor Galal el-Saeed to remove Musallam.

Mahlab visited the National Heart Institute June 6; he expressed his “shock and surprise” at the hospital’s bad services. Doctors then launched their online campaign titled “so if he comes, he won’t be surprised,” referring to Mahlab. Dozens of grim pictures of dirty state-run hospital beds, tools, and bathrooms have been posted.
