Social media went into overdrive last night after the elimination of the two Big Brother representatives from Zimbabwe over what was termed as violent behavour.
Maneta and Roki had had an uneasy relationship in the house and it came to head yesterday when Maneta poured detergent in the urban groover’s face and into his eye. The two had had a tiff earlier in the day. When Maneta poured bleach in his face he then reacted, naturally, we suppose with a slap.
Now, what has been disappointing is the reaction of Roki’s legion of fans who say she should have received a beat-down from him – someone even suggested stabbing. Others have called for fellow fans to go to the airport to beat up Maneta.
Look, we know the girl upset a few people and she may have done a few things out of turn. She was provoked and she behaved like a woman scorned. The fact of the matter is that she behaved in a way we think was natural. We know a lot of women like Maneta who will do thinks out of vengeance. You wanted reality TV and that was Maneta being real. Calling her out for being natural is a bit rich isn’t it.
Like what wordsnith Outspoken said:
the only difference between Maneta and most other women (not all, and its not about gender here!dudes too…) is that they put a camera for her to be analyzed by society.
What s the statute of limitation on what part Roki played in the whole matter? He goaded her, she responded. She poured detergent on him and he smacked her. Doesn’t look like much of an angel there if you ask us. Yes, she targeted him but we are responsible for our own actions.
An underlying factor is that this is the second time that violence has come up in the house. The real question should be:
How much violence between men and women is happening off-camera and remains unreported?
