Sayed Sadaat was the Afghan government's communications minister before emigrating to Germany last September in search of a better future. He now works as a delivery man in the eastern city of Leipzig.He claimed that some people at home chastised him for taking such a job after serving in the government for two years and departing in 2018. But a job is a job for him now."I have nothing to feel guilty about," the 49-year-old said, standing in his orange uniform next to his bike.
"I hope other politicians also follow the same path, working with the public rather than just hiding."With the upheaval occurring at home following the Taliban takeover, his narrative has attracted a lot of attention. His family and friends want to go as well, hoping to join the thousands of others on evacuation planes or find alternative ways out.With the drawdown of US forces looming, the number of Afghan asylum seekers in Germany has increased by more than 130 % since the beginning of the year, according to figures from the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees. Sadaat, despite his history,
failed to find a job in Germany that matched his qualifications. Sadaat had wanted to use his IT and telecom degrees to work in a related area. His odds were poor, however, because he didn't speak German."The language is the most important part," said Sadaat, who also holds British citizenship.Every day, he attends a language school for four hours before beginning a six-hour night time shift delivering meals for Lieferando, where he began this summer. "The first few days were exciting but difficult," he said, describing the challenge of learning to cycle in the city traffic. "The more you go out and the more you see people, the more you learn," he said.
