Afghanistan’s acting finance minister quits, leaves country

Khalid Payenda’s resignation comes after the Taliban captured key customs posts bleeding the administration of revenue.

Afghanistan’s acting finance minister has resigned and left the country. He took this decision after armed group took more than a quarter of Afghanistan’s provincial capitals in less than a week.

The group has captured nine provincial capitals in Afghanistan since Friday. These captures include Faizabad, Farah, Pul-e-Khumri, Sar-e-Pul, Sheberghan, Aybak, Kunduz, Taluqan, and Zaranj.

The Taliban has already gained vast parts of rural Afghanistan since May to coincide with the start of the final withdrawal of foreign forces.

Officials in Afghanistan have confirmed several shake ups in the top military leadership of the country. General Haibatullah Alizai has been named the chief of staff of the army. He replaces General Wali Ahmadzai who had been in the position for a few months.

Sami Sadat has been named the commander for the special operations corps. He had previously taken the lead in the fight to defend Helmand.
