The sparsely inhabited province Zabul Zabol sits mostly above 6,000 feet, it’s arid and insecure. Officials struggle to find educated people to fill administrative slots here, never mind educated, honest people. Eight of the ten district governors are illiterate. The dignified Governor Naseri said there are perhaps 300 educated people in the province of about 300,000 souls. “The Coalition killed two sons of one of our line ministers [for involvement with the insurgency]. But if I remove them, who will replace them? “ As it is, one of Zabul’s eleven districts has no government presence at all.
