Afghan minister becomes bicycle courier in Germany after moving there for a better life



A former communications minister in the Afghan government is now a delivery man in the eastern city of Leipzig after moving to Germany for a better life.



Sayed Sadaat moved to Germany last December in the hope of a better future.



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.



"I hope other politicians also follow the same path, working with the public rather than just hiding," he added.



Though Sadaat was mocked for leaving to take on a delivery job, those at home are now hoping to leave after the Taliban took over government in Afghanistan.
