Pay raise for ANA


General Egon Ramms, a German commander in the NATO-led force in Afghanistan, said last month that of 94,000 Afghan soldiers trained so far, 10,000 have defected, and an estimated 15 percent of the armed forces are drug addicts.

In an effort to retain and attract recruits, the Afghan government recently announced a 33 percent pay rise for soldiers and police.

Officers at the KMTC said the pay rise, bringing average salaries up to around 200 dollars a month, is already making a difference.

“Morale has certainly had a boost since the pay rise,” said Major Mahhoobullah, chief of staff and acting commander at KMTC.
