Paktia residents allege corruption in education department

playgroundResidents are infuriated by the endemic corruption in education department of Paktia.

They alleged that presence of graft has prevented proper construction of playgrounds at four different schools: Abdul Hai Gardezi, Shari Nawan, Khwaja Hassan and Babrak Khan.

According to Pajhwok Afghan News (PAN), the United States Embassy had donated USD 350,000 in aid to Paktia education department for construction of playgrounds at the aforementioned schools. However, the residents claimed the projects have not been executed accordingly.
