Ousted president Hosni Mubarak’s health condition has deteriorated further ahead of his birthday today, as his grandson plans to take him a cake

The condition of toppled Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak’s health has deteriorated further on his 83rd birthday, Ahram Online has learnt.‎

Mubarak, who was ousted on 11 February following an 18-day revolt, has been detained at the Sharm El-‎Sheikh International Hospital pending investigations into charges that he ordered ‎the killing of peaceful protesters, ‎accumulating illegal profits and persistently abusing his ‎unfettered power during his 30-year reign.‎

According to media reports, the ousted president’s health has been anything but ‎stable since his overthrow. Sources told Ahram Online, hours before his birthday, that ‎Mubarak’s depression notably reflected on his health. He even refuses to see family ‎members. ‎

However, the sources said Mubarak’s grandson Omar, a rarity in being a male Mubarak not in custody, will take him a cake to celebrate his birthday on 4 May, in an attempt to ‎lift his spirits.‎

Both of Mubarak’s sons, Alaa and ‎Gamal, have been remanded in police custody pending ‎investigations. They were ‎incarcerated in Tora Prison last month along with numerous former ‎ministers and high-profile ‎government officials.‎

A host of Mubarak’s supporters plan to rally at the ‎state television building in Maspero ‎today to celebrate his birthday.‎
