Kabul/IBNS: It is quite a wide known fact that Afghanistan is facing a lot of economic and political turmoil since the Taliban took control of the country but a recent Twitter post by Kabir Haqmal, who earlier worked with the Hamid Karzai government, depicts the poor condition of many talented professionals in the nation.

Haqmal shared the photo of Musa Mohammadi, an Afghan journalist, who is now forced to sell food on the streets.

In the caption, Haqmal said that Mohammadi was part of the media sector for years, but facing a dire economic condition, he has now been selling food to make ends meet.

“Musa Mohammadi worked for years as an anchor & reporter in different TV channels, and now has no income to feed his family. & sells street food to earn some money. #Afghans suffer unprecedented poverty after the fall of the republic,” he said.

Mohammadi's story is going viral on the internet. It even caught the attention of Ahmadullah Wasiq, the Director-General of National Radio and Television.

In his tweet, Wasiq mentioned that he will appoint the former TV anchor to his department.
