Big Brother housemates get a therapist
After a traumatic four weeks marred by drama and violence, Big Brother organised a therapist for the traumatised upvillers. The housemates spoke at length with the therapist, during a private session conducted in the upville lounge. In the last 14 days, four housemates have been disqualified from StarGame after their verbal arguments turned physical.
There has also been a lot of confusion in upville since Maneta and Roki were disqualified regarding the evictions on Sunday night as many of the Housemates were not sure whether evictions would continue as planned or not. Big Brother then put the housemates out of their misery and notified them that despite Maneta and Rookie’s disqualification, evictions will go on as planned this Sunday.
Meanwhile in a significant strategic partnership forged this year, M-Net’s Big Brother StarGame and the global development organisation The One Campaign have joined forces to promote thrive, an important anti-hunger initiative that promotes the idea of farming one’s own food.
As part of the campaign, housemates will be taught various skills on how to affordably and easily improve their garden and crop production. This will include creating fertilizer and irrigation systems plus easy step-by-step methods of how to take care of a garden.
It is hoped that by demonstrating how to create and manage a vegetable garden, the housemates will illustrate to audiences the feasibility of doing the same. The ultimate result, for both the housemates, and for Africa at large, is to ensure the nurturing of healthy food sources.
