Rabat – Egyptian anchorwoman Wafaa ElKilany apologized to Moroccans following her description of Morocco as the ‘land of sorcery’.
In a series of posts on her official Facebook page, the Egyptian anchorwoman said she did not intend to offend anyone. She added that Morocco is a country that she “respects” and that her words “were not understood correctly.”
In her show broadcasted on MBC network, Wafa ElKilany said that Morocco and Africa are the “land of sorcery”.
Known for her treatment of sex-related topics, the Egyptian anchorwoman described Morocco and Africa as the land of sorcery and black magic, overlooking the fact that Egypt is also an African country.
ElKilany’s recent statement sparked controversy amongst the Egyptians themselves, who demanded that she apologize and called upon the Saudi group MBC to take immediate action against her.
In this regard, a group of Egyptian journalists sent a complaint to the Egyptian Journalists Union on Tuesday evening to protest the offensive remarks of Egyptian TV presenter Wafaa ElKilany, who said in her show on the MBC network that Morocco and Africa are the “land of sorcery.”
