Syed Ahmed Shah Sadat while talking to a news agency said that in the initial days I was not getting any work to live in this city because I do not know the German language. Right now I am working as a pizza deliverer just to learn German. Through this job, I am visiting different parts of the city and meeting people so that in the coming days I can improve myself and get another job.
As the Taliban was taking over Afghanistan, many ministers and VIPs fled the country including the former President Ashraf Ghani who left the day after as the Taliban took over Kabul.
Sadat told Sky News that he never expected the civilian government to fall so quickly.
