1. Former Ambassadors to Indonesia:
Faizullah Zaki Faziullah Zaki Fazullah Zaki, son of Mohammad Ibrahim, was born in Jawzjan Province and raised in Kabul 1958 and earned a degree in Geology from Kabul University. He made it from communist youth functionary (DYOA head for Kabul in the 1980s) to deputy leader of Jombesh, a non-mujahedin tanzim, the military-political network established and led by now First Vice President Abdul Rashid Dostum. In 1991 Zaki moved his family to Uzbekistan where he was the Deputy Director General of Quyosh Co. LTD., a family company.
Zaki was the spokesman and right hand for General Dostum for four years. Later he disagreed with Dostum and was beaten up (2006), some people say by General Dostum and had been hospitalized in Uzbekistan. Zaki apparently was violating the line of Junbesh-i-Milli, Abdul Rashid Dostam's ethnic Uzbek party. Zaki may have fallen afoul of his own political leader and erstwhile protector, General Dostum, after showing independence in his voting in Parliament, in particular supporting President Hamid Karzai's cabinet choices, said one Parliament colleague, who spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing retribution.
In 2011 he is the Vice Chairman of the National Islamic Movement (Northern Alliance, Afghan National Front). Zaki defended his and other Opposition members Berlin talks with US Congressmen (201200108/09), saying they allowed the opposition to air their views internationally. He is also the National Front Spokesperson (20120823)
Faizullah Zaki was previous serving as minister of labor, social affairs, martyrs, and disabled. A source privy of the development said that President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani had earlier asked Zaki to support him in election campaigns but the request was turned down by Zaki.(20190406)
Zaki speaks Uzbek, Dari, Russian and English.
