Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, who ruled Egypt for 30 years before he was overthrown in a popular uprising, has died at 91, according to state media.
Mubarak was a strongman president who led the Arab world’s most populous country with an iron fist. He was deposed in 2011, and was the second Arab dictator to fall in a wave of popular protests known as the Arab Spring.
Hosni Mubarak was in the intensive care unit at a hospital in Cairo when he died.
The ex-president went into surgery on January 23, according to his son Alaa Mubarak on Twitter.
Mubarak was 4 years younger than the former Kenya’s President, the Late President Daniel Arap Moi.
Kenya lost former President Moi this month after dying at the age of 95 according to his official birth records.
The death of Moi, who ruled Kenya from 1978 to 2002, was announced by President Uhuru Kenyatta in a statement carried by the state broadcaster earlier this month.
Moi had been in hospital for more than a month.
