There is no denying the fact many people have lost their jobs in the times of the coronavirus pandemic, some have got big salary cuts and there are several others who have not received their salary for past few months. However, a news anchor chose a unique way to express his plight as he spoke about it during live feed of the news.
The name of the TV news anchor is Kabinda Kalimina who was employed by the news channel KBN which operates in Zambia, East Africa. While reading the news, Kabinda took a break and said,
“Away from the news, ladies, and gentleman, we are human beings. We have to get paid. Unfortunately, on KBN we haven’t been paid. Sharon and everyone else hasn’t been paid, including myself. We have to get paid.”
After Kabinda’s statement, the live feed was cut by the channel and the opening montage was once again visible on the screen.
