Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
ZIMBABWEAN Itai says although he was evicted from the Big Brother Africa Revolution house, he was happy to be free again.
Itai Makumbe, 31, of Mutare, will have a week's holiday before joining the finale extravaganza on Sunday.
"I'm OK about walking out and going back into the real world that I know. It would have been nice to walk out with the money and the big prize. I wish the rest the best of luck," he said yesterday.
Itai said he had braced himself for the eviction. He said it was hard to tell who would win because all the contestants remaining have been nominated before but survived because they had the talent to entertain.
"I think Kevin or Eddie will win as they have the votes. They played the game well so far. I did not have a sweetie in the house as it was not part of my strategy. There was a girl that everyone expected to get on with me but nothing happened.
"I walked in as a gentleman. I had days when I was down but I wanted to get along with everyone. There were days when I missed my girlfriend but I was determined not to behave in that way."
"If I had won the big pot I would have gone crazy a little bit and then consulted investors."
Itai will return to the African University in Mutare to complete his MA in peace and governance.
