Khalid Payenda, former FM of Afghanistan, now earns 150 USD a day as an Uber driver

Government of Afghanistan fell last year after US ceased its military operations and the Taliban took over the country

Khalid was seen driving a Honda Accord in the USA as an Uber driver and told The Washington Post, “If I complete 50 trips in the next two days, I receive a $95 bonus.”

Khalid says he’s grateful for this chance as the money he earns provides for his wife and four kids

Payenda stepped down from his post of Finance Minister of Afghanistan a week before the Taliban took over
