Objectivity 3.7 | Credibility 3.9 | Relevance 4.2

As the Taliban has stopped paying its electricity providers, not only Kabul but the whole country is now on the threat of a black-out. Afghanistan’s state run electricity company DABS, which stands for Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat, needs about $90 million for its liabilities. This includes debts to power suppliers in neighboring countries that help provide power. However, the Taliban won’t let DABS use the money in its account to pay some of these debts. The realization of no real leadership is beginning to show their weaknesses and brings the concern of how they took over in the first place.
