WATCH: Journo tells viewers that he has not been paid on LIVE TV

We are in the business of being on-air, so we understand how it can be, but this is a whole new level of going rogue...

Have you ever been in a room where you end up saying to yourself (in your head), "Oh shucks, that's awkward!"? Well, the people in the KBN News studio most likely said that or worse when this happened last week, live on TV. 

A news reporter started off his segment a bit shakily and then went on to share that he has not been paid! How awkward is that? On a scale of 1 to 10, we would call that an 11...

We can't say that we related much to this reporter, but we sure are embarrassed for him and for his news station. It doesn't say much for both parties as it's unprofessional, but it's damn entertaining. 

But that's just one way of looking at it. After taking a deeper look into his profile, it seems he did this as a way of speaking out for himself and other journalists, many of who are afraid to speak up.

The KBN News station CEO, Kennedy Mambwe, released in a statement that Kabinda Kalimina was intoxicated at the time of the broadcast and did not mention anything about the statement that the staff were not paid. 

"As KBN TV, we are appalled with the drunken behaviour exhibited through a video clip that had 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," Mambwe said, according to CNN.

Kabinda has been very active on his Facebook page addressing questions from the public as to whether he has been paid, and what motivated him to do this on live television.
