The Interim Mayor of the capital of Afghanistan says several women city workers have been instructed by the new Taliban leaders of the country.

Sunday, Hamdullah Namony informed reporters that only women unable to be substituted by men were allowed to report to work. He said that this comprises qualified professionals in the departments of design and engineering and women attending the public bathrooms for women.

Namony's statements were another proof that the Taliban, despite their initial pledges of tolerance and inclusiveness, are upholding their strict interpretation of Islam including limitations on women in public life. The Taliban had prohibited girls and women from schooling and employment in their prior regime in the 1990s.

The mayor said that a final decision on women employees in the departments of Kabul is still pending and that in the meanwhile they would receive their pay.

He said that just about a third of the almost 3,000 urban staff were women working in all departments prior to the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan last month.

Even before the Taliban regained control, this year more than 550,000 people were forced to evacuate their homes because of the UN HCR ( UN refugee agency).

Thousands of individuals are still waiting to get away, including British people, other foreigners, and Afghans who are qualified for relocation overseas.

Khalid, an Afghan who served as a British Army interpreter, told a television channel that he was relieved of leaving the country - laced with grief. He and his family live in northern England currently.

"I've been sad for those things when you leave your nation, your people, especially your sister, your brothers, your mother, your everyone. I'm happy in the UK now" he stated.
