Prolonged power outage concerns Kabul citizens

KABUL: A number of Kabul citizens expressed concern over the recent long blackout in the capital, saying they have electricity for just 3 to 4 hours a day.
This is while, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) has signed many contracts with neighboring countries to increase the electricity supply in the country.
Shah Mohammad and Homayoun, two Kabul residents were quoted by Hiwad daily correspondent as saying that the recent prolonged power outages have created lots of problems for the citizens.
Most parts of the city face 15 to 20 hours of power outages, according to them.
They asked the organs concerned to pay more attention in this field. “Those with good economic capability, can run generators but most of the citizens have to live in hours of blackout.” Unfair power distribution in some parts of Kabul city is another problem and more load-shedding is intolerable.
Da Afghanistan Breshna Shirkat, the country’s main power supply company should fairly distribute power and address the current problem. Meanwhile, Da Afghanistan Breshna Shirkat officials have said that with the arrival of winter the imported electricity from Uzbekistan has reduced and the citizens’ wide use of
power heaters inflected heavy pressure on transformers.
“So, this is why we have to cut the power for a few hours,” said the company in a statement released recently.
