Zimbabwe’s representatives in Big Brother StarGame Rockford “Roki” Josphats and Maneta Mazanhi are expected home this evening. They were disqualified from the reality show on Tuesday afternoon after a brawl.
Following their exit from the reality series, the two underwent anger management, counselling and psychological treatment before being released. The relationship between the two has never been smooth ever since Maneta moved to Upville where she joined a host of celebrity housemates from Africa, including Roki.
They would argue, fight and never made peace as compatriots. Liz Dziva, the MultiChoice Zimbabwe public relations manager, could not be reached for comment at the time of going to print. However, Bybit Areketa, Roki’s manager said the artiste was expected back home today.
“We invited all his fans to come and welcome him at the airport this evening. He is coming aboard South African Airways between 6pm and 9.30pm. We want to urge Zimbabweans to come and support him,” she said. She, however, could not confirm whether Maneta and Roki will be on the same flight.
Areketa said details of the welcome party were still sketchy but it was highly likely that it will be held this Saturday at a venue to be advised.
In a related matter, most Big Brother StarGame fans have slammed Maneta, for among other things, her attitude towards Roki and her strategy or lack thereof, during her stint in the house. The Bulawayo-born lass gossiped a lot, bad-mouthed not only Roki but also Zimbabwe and Zimbabweans at large.
