Former TV Producer Found Floundering In Poverty.

Former TV Producer Kevin Shaban

Former TV Producer Kevin Shaban trained as a journalist at Moi University and worked for the Kenya Television Service, which was closed down in 2018 due to debt charges.

Upon graduation, he found a job as a lecturer at one of the colleges in Eldoret Town.

Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic that contributed to the closing of learning institutions, he has now been left to the mercy of the streets.

Shaban has reverted to carrying luggage as his only means of survival for residents in Eldoret.

He was captured sitting on top of his trolleys waiting for customers, causing the emotions of Kenyans who wished him well and prayed for him to find a better job.

Among several Kenyans who have been adversely affected by the pandemic is the journalist.

Hundreds of reporters lost their employment due to a downturn in ads, as media houses announced declining revenues.

Nation Media Group, the Standard Group and Mediamax Limited sent more than 300 staff members home months after Kenya first reported the virus.

Teachers, particularly those in private institutions and lecturers in private colleges, have not been spared too.

Frank Lumumba, a local university lecturer, told the media he was forced to sell some of his household items and began looking for construction jobs.

“As you can see now, you realise my TV, a 32 inch, is missing. There was a microwave there, there was a fridge there. Now when you look around, they are not there,” Lumumba said.
