Big Brother Africa evicts housemate for punching woman

South African producers had initially allowed Hannington Kuteesa to remain on the show, despite his assault on Lerato Sengadi on Tuesday. Ms Sengadi's family had planned a protest to demand his removal.

Activists had said letting him remain could perpetuate the belief that African men had the right to hit women. TV company M-Net had told Mr Kuteesa, from Uganda, to apologise to South African Ms Sengadi during one of their recordings. It also provided counselling to both contestants.

But on Friday, the housemates in Johannesburg were told that after "very careful consideration and consultation", Mr Kuteesa had been evicted.

Big Brother said he had "anger problems" and advised him to continue seeing a therapist.

Ms Sengadi was also admonished for insulting Mr Kuteesa during a heated argument before the punch was thrown. She was banned from drinking alcohol and put on dishwashing duties for the remainder of the contest.
