Egypt: Ma'zouns to go on Strike

Commenting the strike Ma'zouns (officials who officiate marriages) in Egypt, intend to observe in June, director Amr Ghaleb tweets [ar] on May 28 :I don't know what's the plural of Mazoun, …. but they are going on a strike next month, so anyone planning to get married or divorced, there are 3 days left. Sarcastically, Mostafa El Habashy says in a another tweet [ar] on May 26: Even uncle Ma'zoun intended to observe a strike ….thus separating two hearts. Oh uncle Ma'zoun you're horrible!
