One of the house-mates will be a Ugandan. Big Brother, one of the worldâ€™s most popular reality television programmes, will have one of our countrymen when it resumes sometime next year.
The new effort by the pay channel M-Net, Big Brother Pan Africa, will have house-mates from 12 countries across Africa that have a joint venture with M-Net. This includes Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, and Botswana. Others are Nigeria, Ghana, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and Burundi.
â€œThe Big Brother advance crew will be here next week, seeking partners to work with,â€ Richard Mwami, Multichoice (U) Sales Manager, told The New Vision. â€œWe will be looking for partners in telecommunications and with local television networks.â€
According to Mwami, the selection process must be complete by January. Applications will be invited from people all over Uganda, after which short-lists will be made, and then interviews held with the short listed people. As with former Big Brother episodes, the public will then be asked to vote for the eventual house-mate from Uganda, who will then move to South Africa to live in the Big Brother House with 11 other people from 11 different countries. His family will also move to Johannesburg with him/her.
Again as in previous episode, the successful house-mate will win one million Rand. The others will also receive cash and other prizes, and become celebrities in their own right.
