Jub Jub and the team behind Uyajola 9/9 have been repeatedly criticised for their invasive and aggressive methods used in the reality TV show. But has the Moja reality TV show taken things too far to ignore this time?

According to viewers, the answer is yes. And if Sunday night’s episode is anything to go by, the show and its host may be in hot water with the law.

On Sunday night, Uyajola 9/9 and host Jub Jub tackled its most explosive episode yet – a love triangle between married man Brandon, his wife Dominique, and his pregnant side-chick Sherona.

In the show, viewers saw the camera crew and presenter bust into the bedroom of the man and his mistress, who were naked in bed.

But the Uyajola 9/9 crew did the unthinkable when they removed the bed sheet and blanket covering the disgraced duo, leaving them naked and exposed to millions of South African viewers.

To make matters worse, Jub Jub and the cameramen positioned themselves to exploit the expectant woman, who used her long hair to cover her face and private parts.

The bodyguards also stood back whilst Dominique repeatedly hit Sherona and Brandon, who were helpless to respond to the attack.

Twitter users acknowledged the shady practices by Uyajola 9/9 and its presenter.

Here’s what they had to say:

@DirectorBetso: “I am writing to the Broadcasting Complaints Commission of South Africa (BCCSA) expect Jub Jub show Uyajola 9/9 to be cancelled. It violates many codes of conduct and it is getting worse”

@zipppiiiiiii: “Surely Uyajola and Jub Jub and his crew are breaking some laws by stripping people, recording them naked, and then broadcasting all this on national TV”

@maggs79146219: “The incident that was aired by Moja Live- Uyajola 9/9 yesterday must see its way to ICASA.I believe that many broadcasting rules and constitutional rights were violated. Furthermore, Jub Jub must look into his utterance. I am urging viewers to join with adding complaints”

@2lani_Dlaminii: “What Jub Jub did is uncalled for, so many human rights were broken here, including the right to have your dignity protected, harassment, invasion of privacy, emotional and physical trauma, regardless of cheating. Sherona doesn’t deserve to be humiliated publicly”

@Tumie31237231: “I’m so disappointed with Jub Jub, clearly he only cares about content. NO WOMAN would want to be filmed naked with a room full of men, really disgusting honestly”
