This Sunday, “This Week” covers the latest developments in the crisis in Egypt following the ouster of the country’s first democratically elected president by the Egyptian military. Plus, former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush discuss their latest trip to Africa.

Former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi remains under house arrest following the military’s move this week to dissolve the country’s constitution and remove him from power, drawing both celebration and protests in the streets of Cairo. Was it an unwarranted military coup or a necessary response to growing political and social unrest? What happens next to the country’s fragile democracy? And how should the U.S. respond?

In a “This Week” Sunday exclusive, ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl goes one-on-one with Egypt’s Ambassador to the U.S. Mohamed Tawfik on the latest developments. And we examine the fallout from Egypt with ABC News’ George Will, ABC News Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz, Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, and the American Enterprise Institute’s Michael Rubin.

Plus, following a week with President Obama in Africa, Jonathan Karl traveled to Tanzania to speak with former President George W. Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush on their continuing relief work in Africa, plus President Bush’s thoughts on the turmoil in Egypt and the debates over NSA surveillance and immigration reform.

And the powerhouse roundtable debates all the week’s politics, with ABC News’ George Will and Cokie Roberts, ABC News contributor and Democratic strategist Donna Brazile, and ABC News Political Director Rick Klein.
