Similarly in Logar, there are quite a few villages of Ahmadzi who support Hizb.
I agree there are some Zadrans aswell,but most of his supporters were from tribes based in Zazai and Zurmat,and north of Paktya,Logar and Kapisa both have a presence of Hizbe Islam.People who once supported him from Paktya or were member in his clan left all to join the Islamic Emirate.
As i said,the locals do not trust him,he switchsides faster than the changing of the weather in Europe.
One thing is for him clear,whenever he turns his weapon toward the Islamic emirate or his men,he will end up as we have seen other Warlords.
