Under intense pressure to reform, President Hamid Karzai plans to replace heads of two ministries linked to corruption while retaining several others favoured by the West, Afghan officials said yesterday. The cabinet lineup is an apparent bid to balance US demands and appease local power bosses who helped him win re-election.
As a person, and a parliament so crooked these folks have to collectively screw their socks on in the morning, don't look for any true reform here.
The changes are cosmetic only. Unfortunately, the corruption will remain in place, no matter how many changes Karzai makes in his cabinet.
