Taliban Fails To Pay Electricity Bills, Kabul To Face Blackout

Daud Noorzai, the former CEO of Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS), has warned that Afghanistan's Kabul could face a blackout and the scenario could lead to a humanitarian catastrophe, according to the Wall Street Journal (WSJ). The city could go black ahead of the winter season due to the country's new Taliban rulers' failure to pay dues to Central Asian electricity suppliers.

Noorzai is currently in communication with DABS officials daily after resigning on August 15, just two weeks after the Taliban seized power. According to him, the consequences will be felt across the country, but mainly in Kabul. He also stated that a blackout would occur, returning Afghanistan to the 'Dark Ages' in terms of power and communications. Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan provide half of the country's electricity.

Afghanistan lacks a national electricity grid

According to the Wall Street Journal, the drought has hurt domestic output. According to the research, Kabul is almost totally reliant on Central Asian power imports since Afghanistan lacks a national electricity grid. Because the Taliban no longer attack Central Asian transmission cables, Kabul now has plenty of power. Things could change if Central Asian suppliers decide to turn off DABS due to non-payment because their ties to the Taliban worsen. According to EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell, Afghanistan faces a terrible humanitarian crisis and an imminent socio-economic collapse, both of which will be disastrous for the region and global security.

Biden left behind quite a mess in Afghanistan, now they get to experience blackouts like we have with PC energy.

Sounds more like The GOP in this country, where Red States like Texas has an antiquated power grid that goes out in the winter, causing the deaths of scores, because the state doesn’t think it should properly regulate and oversee industry, AND its worthless politicians fly off to Cancun while their constituents die.

Not to mention what May befall us by the likes of Mitch McConnell and party, who don’t want to lift the debt ceiling to pay for the tax breaks for the wealthy THEY VOTED FOR!!  And they filibuster if the responsible adults, the Dems, try to do it with their majority!  But I guess they think the ensuing crash if the economy and subsequent chaos will be good for them.  What a bunch if traitorous jerks they are!!!
