groups want Big Brother Africa—“a mockery of African culture”—off the air.
“A group of Zambian churches has demanded that the reality television show Big Brother Africa be taken off the air” because it “is a mockery of African culture,” The BBC reports. Some Zambian churches say the show’s more risque scenes “are eroding Zambia’s moral fibre and undermining efforts to change sexual behaviour as a way of combating the spread of HIV and Aids.” They want Zambian’s state-owned network to stop broadcasting the show, which is also distributed by satellite.
