Afghan Political Analysts on Corruption and its affect on Foreign Aid

Political Analysts have expressed their deep concerns about the pervasive corruption in the country that may lead to loss of foreign aid.

At the second international conference held in Tokyo for the reconstruction of Afghanistan since the overthrow of the Taliban international donors will pledge USD 3.9 billion to Afghan government annually post the transition period.

“Like the upcoming Tokyo conference, many other international conferences such as London conference, Bonn conference, Paris conference, Chicago conference and even the first Tokyo conference had been held to help rebuild this country but almost all the assistance contributed to the war-ravaged nation has been embezzled by mafia groups,” Faizullah Jalal, Kabul University professor and political observer.

“The reconstruction process is very poor, and the rate of unemployment is very high. To find jobs and support their families, thousands of Afghans migrate to Pakistan and Iran annually if not monthly. But economy mafia, land mafia and drug mafia have monopolized the power and enjoy the life” added Jalal.

The Afghan Anti-Corruption Network (AACN) said there had been visible achievements against graft in the country by the government; however, more is needed to be done to ensure the continuous support of the international community for the security, stability, economic and social development of Afghanistan.

“We urge government and international community to guarantee the implementation of the conference decisions and recognize the role of civil society in the fight against corruption.”

In order to prevent the mistakes committed in the past and see evident results of the aid provided by the international community, it is for the donors to ensure good governance. They must learn from the past and condition any assistance in future on fighting corruption, drug trafficking and on respecting human rights particularly the rights of women, on ensuring social justice, on fighting terrorism and mafia within and outside of Afghansitan.

The government should implement a comprehensive mechanism for fighting corruption and encourage strong participation from the media and civil society to oversee the mechanism, as part of fortifying transparency and accountability.
