Submitted by South Asia Division in VOA deserve a better Chief (United States), Apr 23, 2010 at 11:55

Can you do something about Sopzhmai Maiwandi and remove her from South Asia Division..the woman created an empire for herself under the shadow of Capitol Hill with tax payers money. She hired a Pakistani Pashtun with no experience in journalism and no knowledge of the language as Cheif of Pashto Radio. I was among the applicants, I am native Pashto speaker from Afghanistan with over 10 years of experience in radio broadcast with VOA and there were five more qualified Afghans who applied too but the position was given to a Pakistani with no experience and knowledge of Pashto Language. He writes Pashto with Urdu alphabet.

Pashto staff testfied in 2002 to VOA board of governors against Spozhmai Maiwandi and her attempts to promote Taliban by interviewing Mulla Omar and other Taliban commanders and as result she was removed from the position of Chief of Pashto service. she is now taking her revenge from Pashto service staff. She hired Ibrahim Nasar as Cheif of Pashto division to demonstrate to Pashto staffers that she can do anything she likes, no one is capable to remove her or quesiton her authority. Who is supporting her. Is it CIA, is it ISI, is she helping U.S. by giving them information about Taliban. She has Mulla Omar's phone number.
