Show Labels over Nested Donuts

The Kendo UI Donut Chart provides an option to display the labels over its nested rings.

The example below demonstrates how to configure such behavior.

Example
    <base href="https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/donut-charts/index">

    <div id="example">
      <div class="demo-section k-content wide">
        <div id="chart" style="background: center no-repeat url('../content/shared/styles/world-map.png');"></div>
      </div>
      <script>
        function createChart() {
          $("#chart").kendoChart({
            title: {
              position: "bottom",
              text: "Share of Internet Population Growth"
            },
            legend: {
              visible: false
            },
            chartArea: {
