Student Maneta and musician Roki, both housemates from Zimbabwe, were evicted from Big Brother StarGame onTuesday, 19 June.
They had been bickering all day and despite Big Brother intervening and advising both housemates directly that they needed to amend their behaviour immediately, they disregarded this instruction.
The bickering continued and escalated into violence. According to the rules of the show, any housemate committing any act of physical violence is subject to immediate expulsion from the series. This season saw the ‘anti-violence’ rule expanded to include any housemate whose provocative behaviour contributed substantially to creating a hostile and aggressive environment in which violence is the result.
M-Net and series producer Endemol consider the rules regarding physical violence among the most important in the house and are committed to enforcing the immediate disqualification of any housemate/s who break these. Roki and Maneta will be provided with psychological and medical treatment and counseling to assist them with conflict and anger management.
