Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe has awarded over 200,000 euros to the losing candidate of Big Brother Africa. Munyaradzi Chidzonga said during the show that it was his childhood dream to meet the president.

Chidzonga won the hearts of Mugabe's side of the government because of his patriotic behaviour during the show - he often appeared draped in a Zimbabwean flag.

Most live on less than 2 euros a day - and a sixth of the population don't even have access to clean water.
