Debater on on Big Brother Africa

I've just come across this on one of the news feeds. Justice Motlhabani who many people will know as the face of Botswana debating (he presented their bid to host Worlds at last year's council meeting) and a contributor to this site is on the TV show Big Brother Africa.

Best of luck Justice. If you are in Africa and can vote for him do.

M-Net's Big Brother Africa, the show, which kept many, glued to their screens some four years ago is back, and audiences can catch the drama, emotions and excitement of the 98-day reality series on DStv. And just who are the 12 Big Brother Africa 2 housemates?

BOTSWANA - Justice (23)
Birthday: January 17 Gender: Male
Place of Birth: Serowe
Height: 1.52m
Occupation: Freelance Journalist/Student

If he wrote his own book, Justice would call it An Idiot's Guide to Harnessing the Marvellous Power of Madness. An absolute enthusiast for the art of debate, Justice says if he won USD 100, 000 he'd use part of the money to start a debating organisation. He also says his favourite memory was when he presented a bid for Botswana to host the World Universities Debating Championships. "I was thrilled by the reception and encouragement I received."

And, if he wins a task in the Big Brother house, Justice would like his reward to be sponsorship to study at Oxford or Sydney Universities because they have the best debating societies in the world. "It may sound intense, but yeah that's me, I'm quite a character". Listing his bad habits, Justice says, "I'm too controversial, I debate anything. I like playing the devil's advocate." He relaxes by reading, admires Richard Branson ("to say that he is amazing is an understatement"), his favourite foods are Thai and Chinese and he'd love to visit Necker Island.

Update 9th August: Someone who is more familiar with Big Brother than I am has advised me that urging people to vote for Justice may actually be a bad thing. It seems that each week two people are nominated, the public votes and the person with the most votes loses (sort of like a US presidential election). Therefore if you are in Africa please don't vote for Justice if he is nominated.
