Zimbabwe to get Big Brother-style reality show

The show, which sees strangers living together in a house fitted with cameras and microphones, will kick off later this year.

The organisers of Zimbabwe’s upcoming One House, a local version of the successful Big Brother reality TV programme, say they are confident they will make it a success.

Zambian Cherise Makubale was the first winner of Big Brother Africa in 2003 in South Africa

“We are ready to host it”, Taona Oswald Chipunza, the head of Teemak Promotions told the state-owned Chronicle newspaper.

The show, which sees strangers living together in a house fitted with cameras and microphones, will kick off later this year and the winner will take away $50,000 (£42,000).

“The show will be broadcast live just like Big Brother. We want to give the younger generation an opportunity to shine,” Mr Chipunza said.

There are concerns the attempt to pull off this show will not be successful, as the small southern African country is grappling with its worst economic crisis in a decade.

Zimbabwe has had frequent shortages of foreign currency, food, fuel, electricity and medicine.

But the organisers remain hopeful:

“We’re capable as we have the money,” Mr Chipunza told the Chronicle.
