In a surprising turn of events, Mullah Muhammad Hassan Akhund, the supreme leader of the Taliban, fell ill, prompting Hibatullah Akhundzada to appoint Maulvi Abdul Kabir as the interim prime minister of Afghanistan, as reported by Khaama Press News Agency.

Stepping into his new role, Maulvi Kabir, who previously served as the deputy prime minister for Political Affairs, will lead the Taliban government until Akhund makes a full recovery.

It is worth noting that Akhund has been serving as the prime minister of the Taliban government ever since their resurgence in 2021.

Hailing from the eastern province of Paktika, Maulvi Kabir is associated with the Zadran tribe. Notably, he previously held the position of governor in Nangarhar province during the Taliban’s previous regime from 1996 to 2001.
