Big Brother Africa Profile
Bulawayo-born Maneta is a law student who says she is her own role model: "I am my own person and I have my own capabilities and I am fearfully and wonderfully made".
She has four older sisters and an older brother and says her law degree and her entrepreneurial endeavour are the things she's most proud of because they make her feel "like a Superwoman".
She was inspired to enter Big Brother StarGame after watching former housemate Karen entertain viewers and have so much fun. She'll be playing the game with her stepsister Teclar "because she is more interesting".
Maneta describes herself as fun, intelligent, beautiful, exotic and indescribable. She says that she is a grounded and humble person with morals who respects hard work and perseverance in others. She dislikes pretenders and liars.
If she wins the grand prize, Maneta will make a better future for herself. She is hoping to gain exposure, publicity, fun and new contacts from playing the game and says her family is behind both her and her sister.
She's excited by the fact that the whole continent will be watching her and is looking forward to an "interesting and intriguing" Big Brother StarGame.
Her favourite place in Zimbabwe is the Victoria Falls and says the best thing about Africa is that it has a lot of nature, animals, plants and beautiful people. Away from home, she loves Rome and Venice because of the buildings, culture and food.
On the topic of food, her favourites are mushrooms and cheese and she loves watching America's Next Top Model and Gossip Girl.
