A former communications minister in the Afghan government on the look for a greener pasture moved to Germany where he is now a delivery man in the eastern city of Leipzig.
According to Sayed Sadaat in an interview with Reuters said, to left Afghan for Germany last December in the hope of a better life.
He said some people back home in Afghanistan criticised him for taking such a job after having served in the government for two years, leaving office in 2018, Reuters reports.
But the 49-year-old British-Afghan dual citizen said: “I have nothing to feel guilty about.”
He had quit the Afghan government because of disagreements with members of the president’s circle, he said according to Reuters.
Sayed also advised other politicians to take the step he took rather than going into hiding.
“I hope other politicians also follow the same path, working with the public rather than just hiding,”
Sadaat’s family and friends are hoping to join the thousands of others on evacuation flights or trying to find other routes out of Afghanistan.
