Unfortunately, even when it tries, this is sometimes easier said than done. This morning the governor of al-Dhal'a, Ali Qasim Talib, was forced to cancel his visit to the district of al-Juhaf where he was scheduled to lay the corner stones for some different educational and health projects. The reason: security threats. If the governor can't even travel in his governorate to inaugurate new projects what chance is there?
Update: Al-Tagheer provides more details on the story: apparently, the "security threats" were an explosion that went off near the governor's house in al-Dhal'a and a group of armed men that besieged the directer of al-Juhaf as he attempted to raise the flag of the republic above his office Tuesday morning. Not good when you can't even fly the flag in the south.
