CAIRO – Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak will not go to an African Union summit in Uganda after officials had cited his planned attendance as proof of his good health.

State media reported Saturday that Mubarak had delegated Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif to represent Egypt at the summit which is expected to address the sensitive issue of sharing Nile waters.

In effort to discount intensifying rumors over the 82-year-old's deteriorating health, government officials on July 14 cited the president's packed schedule, including the African summit, as evidence of his continuing vigor.
