A video that has gone viral online has shown moment a Zambian TV news presenter went off script and demanded for his salary and that of his colleagues during a live news report. In the video, which happened last weekend, the newscaster gave a roundup of the top stories during a live broadcast, before stopping midway to demand for his salary and that of his colleagues.

Kabinda Kalimina who works with KBN TV said: “Away from the news, ladies and gentlemen, we are human beings. We have to get paid. Unfortunately, on KBN we haven’t been paid. People are getting instruments on KBN…Sharon and everyone else haven’t been paid, including myself . We have to get paid.”

However, he was cut off almost immediately. Reacting to this, management of the TV station alleged that Kalimina’s antics has brought the station into disrepute. They also accused him of exhibiting a “drunken behavior”

In the statement released by Kennedy Mambwe, owner and chief executive officer of KBN TV, it was gathered that the management is investigating how Kalimina found himself on air on Saturday night. Mambwe also said that anyone who had assisted Kalimina in his “outrageous stunt” would face disciplinary action.


The statement read:
“As KBN TV, we are appalled with the drunken behaviour exhibited through a video clip that has gone viral on social media and staged by one of our part-time presenters during what should have been the main news bulletin last night. As a young television station, we work with a very highly talented and professional team, with a noble character and we owe the success of unbroken broadcasting for the last two years to such gallant men and women. Members of the public may wish to know that KBN TV like any other institution has very well-established grievance procedures for all members of staff through which they can channel their complaints.

“Therefore, last night’s behaviour by Kabinda Kalimina is out of character and does not represent who we are as a station. We strongly condemn that despicable behaviour and urge members of the public to treat that ‘One-Night stunt of Fame’ with the contempt it deserves.

As management, we are carrying out investigations to determine how a drunken part-time presenter found himself on air unabated and disciplinary action will be taken against anyone who may have been party to the scheme.”

I think the main problem Africa is faced with is lies and dishonesty! Africans are so obsessed with protecting their names and images that they forget the importance of protecting human beings! This guy clearly wasn't drunk, he knows what he was saying and instead of the so called KBN to apologise to its crews and find ways to pay them they're here threatening thunder and brimstone before you know it, they will start arresting the poor staffs to prove a stupid point instead of paying their deserved wages.

I still can't wrap my head round it...how cam adults work for a whole month, and the employers refused to pay them as at when due? Why? Govt, private sectors all do this. Why will people work for you and you won't pay them?
