Drive up to the entrance to the city of Cairo and you will find a monument paying tribute to the founder of the UAE, the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahayan.

The statue has been placed to express appreciation for the late leader’s achievements in the Egyptian capital.

The tribute in his honour also includes a city carrying the Sheikh Zayed name, an athletic club, along with an Azhari Centre that works to develop the new generations to have bright minds.
