Do you recall last week when Early Breakfast presenter Mike V had one of his avid listeners share that he is actually in Afghanistan? This was Kerwin van der Merwe from Sherwood, who was there on employment. 

The news and social media had been and still are flooded with footage of families hoping to flee the country following the takeover of the Taliban. The withdrawal of the US military forces from the country sparked this upheaval. 

Fortunately, while all the trouble erupts, he was able to make his way back home.

So the fire safety officer, who is a family man, shared a voice note which clearly depicted events that were unfolding on that side of the world.
