Kabul Air Force Staff Call for Payment of Salaries

Some members of the Kabul Air Force complained that despite being on active duty they have not been paid since the fall of the former government.  

Shukria is a widow and a mother of six children.  

She has been working as cleaner in the Afghan Air Force base in Kabul for nine years.  

“We don’t have a good salary, but I want to work to raise my children,” she said.  

“We don’t have gas at home or a stove to warm the room. We pay 7,000 Afs rent for the house,” Shukria’s daughter said. 

Despite several attempts, TOLOnews was unable to obtain comments from the Defense Ministry in this regard.  

The Ministry of Finance said that it has not received the list of employees of the Kabul Air Force to proceed with the payments of their overdue salaries.  

The Islamic Emirate said the delay in payment of salaries of the Kabul Air Force employees is due to technical issues.

Deputy spokesman, Bilal Karimi for the Islamic Emirate, also confirmed that the employees of the Kabul Air Force have yet to receive their salaries.  

“(Salary) have not been paid in some departments due to technical issues. After the technical issues are solved, the process will continued,” he said.
