khas[1]URUZGAN PROVINCE, Afghanistan – The Khas district held a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the completion of the first cell phone tower in the district in Uruzgan province, Dec. 23.
The cell phone tower provides the local populace with the ability to communicate with friends and family member across Afghanistan and globally. Local businesses will be able to improve the way they conduct business and it will allow residents of the district to contact the police to report crimes.
“There were a lot of government officials that worked hard to get this tower built,” said a Coalition Force Commander. “District Governor Malik Karim made it his number one priority in order to help the people of the this district.”
It took more than four years of petitioning by Government of the Islamic Republic officials to obtain a cell phone tower for the district. District Chief of Police and the Afghan National Army were responsible for securing the transportation of the equipment from Tarin Kowt.
Guest speakers at the ribbon cutting ceremony included current and former GIRoA leaders and local elders. The ceremony attracted elders from neighboring villages who seldom attendĀ local shuras.
