Gender activists have criticised M-Net for not taking any steps to remove Hannington Kuteesa, a Big Brother All Stars contestant who hit a female housemate, Lerato Sengadi.
Sonke Gender Justice Network’s government and media relations manager, Mbuyiselo Botha, points out the show is setting a bad example by keeping Kuteesa in the house.
His view is reiterated by People Opposing Woman Abuse’s legal services and advocacy programme manager, Wendy Isaacks. Isaacks is of the view that, "The fact that the show is aware of his violent nature towards women from the past season means they are not condemning violence against women."
