Egyptians approves President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi to stay in power until 2030

Egyptians have overwhelmingly approved in a referendum constitutional changes that could allow President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi to stay in power until 2030.
The changes also give him more power over the judiciary and further incorporate the military's role in politics. Former defence minister Sisi took power in 2013 and was elected president in 2014 after leading the army's overthrow of the country's first democratically elected President Mohamed Morsi. Since then, he has overseen what human rights groups say is an unprecedented crackdown on dissent that has led to the detention of tens of thousands of people, an accusation that sisi's government denies.
Channel Africa’s Samora Mangesi spoke to Mohamed El Karaksy, Deputy Egyptian Ambassador to South Africa about the referendum results, and what they mean for Egyptians.
