The convoy of peace activists arrived in capital Kabul on Monday morning after marching for nearly 40 days from the restive Helmand province in the South.

The convoy arrived to Kabul city from Maidan Shahr city, the provincial capital of central Maidan Wardak province.

The convoy has around 90 members and started their march in support of peace process from Lashkargah city more than a month ago with only 8 members.

However, more and more activists joined the march as they were walking through some of the most volatile provinces to reach Kabul.

The members of the convoy have spent three days of Eid while marching towards Kabul and call on Taliban militants to join peace as they emphasize that enough blood have been shed during the past several years.

A number of the convoy members have even abandoned their jobs and call on people and youths to join them in raising and expanding voice in support of peace.

The Helmand peace convoy participants are expected to march through Kabul city today and will travel towards Abdul Rahman Khan and Eidgah mosques.

This comes as efforts are underway to put an end to the ongoing violence and conflict through peace and reconciliation talks.

However, the Taliban group has so far rejected to participate in any form of negotiations aimed at ending the conflict through reconciliation.
