Rwanda's aspiring Big Brother housemates will suffer heartbreak after MNET AfricaMagic announced that Rwanda will no longer participate in this year's Big Brother Africa contest launching on September 7.

Sierra Leone has also been axed from the popular television programme.

In a press release today, AfricaMagic and series producers Endemol SA write: "Unfortunately, due to schedules and logistical constraints there was insufficient time to follow the necessary procedures in order to process the required travel documentation which has recently become a more complex procedure.

M-Net and Endemol SA wish to extend their gratitude to all those individuals, organizations and parties which assisted in working to secure the inclusion of Housemates from both countries.

Whilst it is not possible to include Housemates from both countries in this season, M-Net and Endemol SA are confident that they are able to improve the process in order to successfully incorporate Housemates from both countries if there are future editions of the series".
