Former Afghan Minister of Communications now a delivery rider in Germany.
A FORMER Afghan government minister who left the country two years, ago is now working as a delivery rider on a bicycle in the German city of Leipzig
As Minister of Communications in Ashraf Ghani’s government, two years ago, Sayed Ahmad Shah Sadaat’s life was very different, as this engineer with degrees in telecommunications and electronic engineering from Oxford University had risen to one of the most important positions in the Afghan ruling body.
He successfully negotiated with China and India to put satellites into orbit, and improve Afghanistan’s mobile networks, but now, two years after leaving his post as a minister, Sadyed works as a ‘rider’ for Lieferando, in the German city of Leipzig, delivering food to people’s homes on a bicycle.
