Khost governor under fire over appointment

Khost governor under fire over appointment

Nov 01, 2017 - 17:49

KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): The governor of southeastern Khost province, Hukam Khan Habibi, has introduced two persons as head of the provincial Department of Sports and Physical Training.

The two individuals told Pajhwok Afghan News their appointment letters had been signed by the governor one after another the same day.

Faiz Mohammad Gulab Dost, one of the two who calls himself as acting Director of Sports and Physical Training, said after the previous Sports Director Aziz Malang was transferred to Kabul, he submitted his appointment letter to the governor’s house with reference signature of another previous director, Humayon Khairi.

 “My appointment letter was not signed for 16 days until Malang returned from Kabul and Malang also produced his own appointment letter and submitted that to the governor’s house for signature. Malang’s letter also maintained reference signature of Khairi.

Dost said his letter was signed at 9:00am and Malang’s at 2:00pm. “The Human Resources Department formally introduced me to the Sports Department,” he said.

But Malang said the governor rejected Dost’s appointment for some reasons and termed him (Malang) a suitable candidate.

Meanwhile, some supporters of Ghulab Dost erected a protest tent in front of the Sports Department, opposing Malang’s appointment.

The protestors locked entrance doors to the sports department.
