Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi says allegations of corruption against him and his army generals amount to defamation.
An Egyptian businessman who worked as a military contractor for 15 years, has posted videos online accusing el-Sisi of wasting millions of dollars of public money on palaces, villas, and hotels.
At a Cairo youth summit, the president said the Egyptian army had been ‘defamed’ but did not directly address corruption claims against himself.
