ZIMBABWE’S Big Brother Africa: The Chase representatives, Pokello Nare and Munyaradzi “Hakeem” Mandaza, are guaranteed of another week in the house as they are not up for possible eviction this Sunday.

Housemates up for eviction this week are Rubies housemates: Selly (Ghana), Natasha (Malawi) and Diamonds housemates — Denzel (Uganda), Betty (Ethiopia) and Hudda (Kenya).
The unfortunate housemates will be evicted from the game this Sunday if the eviction is not a mock one like other editions of the show.
Last year though, Zimbabwe’s representative Teclar Mazanhi was put up for eviction during the first week of the show and she was ultimately evicted.
So far, the two country’s representatives have been performing exceptionally well with Hakeem being a gentleman and mesmerising the ladies with Pokello keeping her cool.
Though housemates play the game in the house, viewers play the bigger part of the game as they have the final say through their votes.
The two Zimbabweans seem to have garnered support from various African countries judging from the shows television threads and comments on Twitter and Facebook which have been in their favour.
By yesterday, Pokello’s Facebook fan page, Team Pokello Big Brother Africa Season, had over 11 000 likes.
They also have full backing from Baba Jukwa, an influential page on Facebook with close to 100 000 followers, as the administrators have been urging their followers to support the two Zimbabwean housemates.
