In Giza, Moussa was born. On the urging of his father, he continued his education after beginning it in Egypt, getting a master's degree in architecture at the École nationale supérieure d'architecture de Versailles. He first belonged to the New Wafd Party's youth group before joining the actual party.

In 2005, he joined the El-Ghad Party and became to vice-chairman. El-Ghad broke into two factions, each led by Gameela Ismail and Moussa, when its founder Ayman Nour was given a five-year prison sentence. Both of them used the party's name and emblems as they strove to be accepted as its heirs. In May 2011, the dispute was decided in Moussa's group's favor. In the 2010 elections, he stood unsuccessfully for the Egyptian House of Representatives, where he would have represented the Southern Giza seat. In the 2011–12 election, he served as the party's leader.
