A member of parliament who stayed in Kabul was shot dead at home

Abdullah Abdullah, a senior official in Afghanistan’s former Western-backed government, said he was saddened by Nabizada’s death and hoped the perpetrators would be punished. He described her as a “representative and servant of the people”.


A former Kandahar MP, Malalai Ishaqzai, also expressed her condolences.

Nabizada was elected Kabul’s representative in 2019 and remained in office until the Taliban took over.

She was a member of the Parliamentary Defense Commission and worked at a private non-governmental organization, the Institute for Human Resources Development and Research.

The Taliban have said they are focused on securing the country and encouraging Afghans to return, but several attacks have taken place in recent months, including one last week at the Foreign Ministry that killed and injured dozens and the was claimed by the Islamic State.

In December, a suicide bomber killed one person near the Hezb-e-Islami party’s Kabul office while its leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, who was Afghanistan’s prime minister in the 1990s, was inside.
