Mr 265, six others nominated for eviction this Sunday

BLANTYRE (Maravipost)--Mr 265, Malawi's representative to this year's Big Brother Africa reality TV show, is up for eviction this Sunday.

The Times TV presenter received five nominations from fellow Hotshots for being oppressive in the house.

While Sipe, Malawi's other rep, is safe at least this week. Her group won a task and were exempted from nominations.

With six of the seven housemates evicted so far being women, there is just one lady in danger this week--Botswana's Sheillah.

Sheillah received 10 nominations, mostly because of her attitude and temper, followed by Mack2 from Zambia, who received nine nominations.

Namibia's Luis received four nominations with most of the nominators choosing him because he had earlier wanted to willingly leave the house.

All the nominees are Sheillah, Arthur and Frankie (both Rwanda), Kacey Moore (Ghana), Luis from Namibia, Mr 265 (Malawi) and Mockey2 from Zambia.
