Hannington Kuteesa, the Ugandan representative in reality Television show Big Brother has been evicted punching his South African housemate. Kuteesa allegedly punched Lerato Sengadi, a female housemate from South Africa. The incident happened on Tuesday this week. It is alleged that Kuteesa punched Lerato hard and caused severe injuries following a heated argument in the Big Brother House. BBC reports that Kuteesa was evicted on Friday following criticism from South African women rights activists who demanded his immediate removal from the house. Sengadi's family had also planned protests to demand Kuteesa's forceful removal from the house. According to BBC, M-Net had earlier told Kuteesa to apologise to Sengadi during one of their recordings and remain in the house, but M-net turned around and evicted him. Big Brother met all the remaining housemates in Johannesburg South Africa where the reality show takes place and announced Kuteesa's eviction. Big Brother noted that they have had careful consideration and consultations to evict Kuteesa from the house.According to BBC, Big Brother noted that Kuteesa had anger problems and advised him to see a therapist. Big Brother also cautioned Sengadi for insulting Kuteesa which angered him to punch her. Big Brother also banned Sengadi from drinking alcohol and ordered her to wash dishes for the rest of her days in the house. Hannington Kuteesa is a son to Ruth Nvumetta Kavuma, Kalangala Woman Member of parliament. Jacent Bwanika, a Big Brother Fan who watched that show says she is disappointed Kuteesa has been evicted at this stage. She says she watched that episode and Sengadi deserved the punch because she provoked him after spending the whole day drinking alcohol. Kuteesa's eviction from the house leaves four housemates in the ban house. This year's edition of Big Brother attracted 14 contestants from fourteen countries. It remains unclear when Kuteesa will return home.
