Afghanistan: Jobless ex-soldier commits suicide, seven children find themselves in trouble

Kabul: Hayat Gul, a resident of Ismail Khail Manozai district in Khost province and a member of the previous government's army, left seven children in trouble after he commited suicide around 20 days ago due to unemployment and poverty.

His children told Tolo News that they have lost their sole breadwinner and now they face an uncertain future and a bad economic situation.

Gul was a member of the army of the previous government.

“It was around twelve o’clock, my father was in bed. He told me to go outside, I went and then I heard an explosion. When I came in I heard everyone crying and I saw my father lying on the bed,” Nasib Noor, Hayat Gul’s nine-year-old son, told Tolo News.

Suraya, the daughter of Hayat Gul, says that she will not be able to continue her education after losing her father.

“When our father was alive, he would bring us books, notebooks and everything, now that our father is dead, there is no one to bring us notebooks and books,” she said.
