The artist, Muhammad Mahmoud Abdel Aziz, also published a picture of him in the company of Haitham, and commented, “I cannot find words that I say to you, Haitham, nor until I find words I say to you.”
He continued: “But what I am sure of is that you are sure in a better place and that you are sure to be happy with your beloved ones who loved you and beasted us all..May God have mercy on you and patience, until we meet my dear friend and brothers.
Through his account on the micro-blogging site “Twitter”, Omar Mustafa Metwally posted a picture of Haitham, and commented on it, saying: “A year ago after the death of dear brother Haitham Ahmed Zaki, I call on him with mercy and forgiveness and his light words.”
The artist Haitham Ahmed Zaki passed away on November 7, 2019, at the age of 35, after a short artistic career in which he presented 8 cinematic films and 7 series, and “The Treasure 2” was his last work.
Haitham suffered from health problems before his death, represented by stomach ache and cramps that he suffered as a result of taking drugs and muscle tonics, especially since on this day he was returning from the “gym”, exhausted due to exercises, and he took an overdose of drugs that caused his fatigue, and the compound security personnel took him to the nearest Pharmacy, and the pharmacist gave him two injections of pain reliever.
After examining the surveillance cameras in the compound, it was found that Haitham Zaki came from his house with the security personnel and took him to the pharmacy, then brought him back again.
Then the Giza Security Directorate received a notification from the October Sector Investigation Department, of a report from the artist Haitham Ahmed Zaki’s fiancée that she tried to contact him more than once and he did not respond to her calls.
Immediately, a security force moved and opened the door of the apartment of the artist Haitham Ahmed Zaki, after the Prosecution’s permission, and it was revealed his death.
