Since the takeover of the Taliban in Afghanistan, the country has been facing a severe economic crisis that was also being faced by a former anchorperson who was seen selling food on the street to make ends meet.
The pictures of the anchor, posted by Musa Mohammadi, got viral on the internet.
The post read: “Journalists life in Afghanistan under the Taliban. Musa Mohammadi worked for years as an anchor and reporter on different TV channels, now has no income to feed his family, and sells street food to earn some money.”
He further wrote that “Afghans suffer unprecedented poverty after the fall of the republic”.
The post got the attention of thousands of people, including Ahmadullah Wasiq, the director of the National Radio and Television.
Wasiq said on Twitter that his organisation would appoint him as part of the National Radio and Television.
