Former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said the number of protesters on the streets of Cairo during Sunday’s mass demonstrations, against the Muslim Brotherhood regime of Mohammed Morsi, dwarfs those seen during the “January 25th” revolution that led to his resignation, Egyptian daily Al-Masry Al-Youm reported Tuesday.

Mubarak is currently serving a life sentence for his role in the deaths of protesters during that country’s 2011 uprising. He is awaiting a retrial.

According to Al-Masry Al-Youm, “well-informed sources” said that Mubarak told his sons Gamal and Alaa that he left office in response to the demands of the people of Egypt and to save lives.

The sources added that Mubarak appeared happy, especially so since the beginning of the demonstrations against Morsi which have led people to reevaluate Egypt’s current political climate versus that of the Mubarak-era, often siding with the latter.

Mubarak stepped down in February 2011, after 18 days of protests demanding an end to his 30-year reign overtook the country.
