Now I think you have read that the 4500 B.C years old pyramid of Djoser in Saqqara area, Giza may collapse because of bad restoration works that added more damage to the old amazing building that needs urgent rescue.
|The pyramid Djoser by Heba El-Kholy|
Earlier this week the UNSEC demanded the Egyptian government to present a full report about the situation of the pyramid and its condition after renovation or to be accurate during the unfinished disasterous restoration work
Of course the government or rather the minister of antiquities claims that there is nothing wrong with the pyramid and that those who are making a noise about it in Egypt are members in the Muslim Brotherhood who we're staying in Raba'a sit in !!! Yes the minister pulled the MB card as usual.
Al-Masry Al-Youm published a shocking report with photos about the whole tons of rocks fall now from that old pyramid
Also there are lots and lots of question marks about the company responsible for the restoration works , El-Shorbagy for restoration works which is a subsidiary of El-Shorbagy For constructions. Now despite the company claims to be Egypt's no.1 in antiquities' restoration while archeologists say the opposite. Needless to say I have never heard about it in restoration works.
Amazingly I listened to one of the managers from the company speaking about the pyramid in Akhar Kalam TV show on ONTV show and aside from being weak in his answers , we found out that the company did not have a full map or a blue print of the pyramid and that they did not know about the different paths inside the pyramid or the old wells outside it !!
This is just the tip of the ice-berg. I am mad and fierce because besides everything wrong in this crazy country we got one of the oldest pyramids on the verge of collapse because of lack of transparency, corruption and incompetence.
We cry about how evil IS destroy monuments in Syria and Iraq while we destroy Egypt's world heritage. This pyramid is not owned alone by Egypt but it is owned by world heritage. It is not just a pyramid but rather another leap in human civilization and our government is destroying it by its usual incompetence.
