BRAVO B DISQUALIFIED FROM ‘BIG BROTHER MZANSI’
The comes after a video of the 26-year-old food vendor from KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) and fellow contestant Tshepo “Makhekhe” Tau, were recorded plotting to have sexual intercourse with their fellow female housemates because they were under the influence of alcohol.
In a video circulating on social media, Bravo B is heard saying they should “f**k” Zinhle “Zee” Mofokeng or Liyema “Liema” Phantsi because they are drunk.
According to the Criminal Law Sexual Offences and Related Matters Amendment Act, consent is not present if a person is asleep, intoxicated, mentally incapable of understanding the act, or below the age of consent.
The video sparked outrage on social media, as viewers called for both Bravo B and Makhekhe’s disqualification. Other viewers threatened to report the show to the Broadcasting Complaints Commission of South Africa (BCCSA).
This prompted BBMzansi to release a statement, revealing that the incident was under investigation.
“We are aware of the incident that transpired in the early hours of this morning in the Big Brother Mzansi house. We are currently investigating this matter and will provide an update in due course,” read the short statement.
Following the investigation, Multichoice released a statement announcing Bravo B’s disqualification. The Big Brother Mzansi parent company also revealed that 27-year-old Makhekhe from Katlehong, Ekurhuleni, would be coached on “behaviour etiquettes”.
“We do not condone any acts that threaten the safety of the housemates on the show and we take Gender Based Violence seriously. The housemate that initiated and drove the conversation (Bravo B) has been disqualified from the game and the other housemate (Makhekhe) will face a reprimand from Big Brother with a social lesson on behaviour etiquettes.”
“Mzansi Magic will ensure that Makhekhe is coached to call out anyone who speaks or behaves in a derogatory manner,” reads the statement.
