New Delhi, Aug 29: The former Afghan information minister, Syed Ahmad Shah Saadat, was spotted on the streets of the German city of Leipzig while working as a food delivery guy, according to reports.

Sadaat used to be communications minister in the Afghan government before moving to Germany last December in the hope of a better future. Now he is a delivery man in the eastern city of Leipzig.

As Minister of Communications in the Ashraf Ghani government, Sadaat negotiated with China or India the launch of satellites, as well as the improvement of mobile networks in Afghanistan. Two years after leaving his post as minister, Sadaat works as a ‘rider’ in the German city of Leipzig , delivering food at home on a bicycle.

“I have nothing to feel guilty about,” this 49-year-old Afghan-British citizen told Reuters , who at the end of 2020 decided to leave everything behind in Afghanistan fearing that one day the Taliban could arrive , as has finally happened.

For this reason, upon arrival in Germany he applied for asylum so that, as a refugee, he could start working whatever it was. “Everyone has to pay rent, eat, I could have been a corrupt minister, stole millions of dollars, bought buildings here or in Dubai and not need to work, that’s why I am very proud and have a clear conscience “, has indicated.
