BBA: Mnet makes official statement on Maneta/Roki's disqualification

Student Maneta and musician Roki, both housemates from Zimbabwe, were evicted from Big Brother StarGame today (Tuesday June 19, 2012). The two housemates had been bickering all day and despite Big Brother intervening and advising both housemates directly that they needed to amend their behavior immediately, in line with the clearly stated house rules forbidding violence and provocation, the housemates chose to disregard this instruction.

Their 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 behavior contributed substantially to creating a  hostile and aggressive environment in which violence is the result. M-Net and series producers 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. For more information on the series, log on to
