Residents want Nakamura-initiated projects completed

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Residents of eastern Nangarhar province demand the resumption of projects launched by slain Japanese aid worker Tetsu Nakamura.

Head of Peace Medical Services (PMS) Dr. Nakamura served the Afghans for about 25 years. He was killed along with five colleagues in Jalalabad last month.

Work on projects launched by Nakamura was suspended after his assassination. Local residents want the government of Japan to restart work of the schemes.

Abdul Waki Matakhel, a tribal elder from Kama district, told Pajhwok Afghan News Dr. Nakamura had planned to establish retaining walls along a river in the Sarband area of the district to resolve the water supply problem of the people.

But the scheme remained incomplete, he said, asking the government of Japan to appoint Nakamura’s successor to resume the project.

Mohammad Akbar, another public representative from Khewa district, said all people want the resumption of work on Nakamura’s projects.

Asadullah Shalez, a civil societyinfo-icon activist, hoped for the early completion of Nakamura’s projects. He hoped the physician’s mission would continue.

“PMS has 12,000 workers and they are all willing to continue their work in Afghanistaninfo-icon,” he added.

Attaullah Khogyani, the governor’s spokesman confirmed the Japanese government’s pledge to resume Nakamura’s projects.

He said a successor to Nakamura would be appointed soon by Japan.

Earlier, Japanese Ambassador Mitsuji Suzuka pledged to complete the projects launched by Nakamura in Afghanistan.
