He made the disclosure shortly after giving a roundup of the top stories during a live broadcast.
Kabinda 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.”
In reaction to the incident, the management of the TV station says that the presenter has brought the station to disrepute.
