Social media is talking about Sayed Ahmad Saadat, former Afghan Minister of Communications and Technology.
Saadat, who was a bicycle courier in Leipzig, Germany, broke his silence.
Claiming to have resigned because he was fed up with corruption in Afghanistan, the former minister told AFP: “Business is business … There is no shame in that” .
Stating that he works 6 hours during the week and from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends, Saadat adds that he earns 15 euros an hour, which is enough to cover his expenses.
Stressing that he did not regret having moved to Germany, the former minister said he was ready to advise the German government on Afghanistan.
Stating that the international community should not turn its back on Afghanistan, Saadat says that when it comes to the Taliban, “they may have learned from the mistakes of the past” in terms of human rights and women’s rights.
