Mzi voted out

Johannesburg - On Survivor South Africa: Panama, the power struggle is becoming intense as tribe members are beginning to make room for the final few.

On Sunday night, the latest person to be voted off was Mzi Tyhokolo, the food provider.

According to the M-Net publicity team, Mzi left the island after one of the most-moving tribal councils to date.

While the majority of Burba members might come from the former Rana tribe, there was fervent disagreement about who should be voted off next.

The guys wanted to get rid of Vanessa; but the girls chose Mzi - and got their way.

First, an emotional Zayn broke down, explaining to host Mark Bayly that he felt "like a Judas", but that he would stick to previous promises made and thus not "vote with his heart".

Then a teary-eyed Vanessa, in a last resort to save Mzi's life on the island, asked if she could lay down her torch.

Four ballots against

Mark Bayly told Vanessa such a move would be followed by another vote and that she would thereby eliminate two members from the game, which made her change her mind.

Finally, Mzi got four ballots against his name, while Lezel received two votes - from Mzi and Vanessa.

Even though Gareth told Mzi that he would note vote for him, and Zayn thought it would be more honourable to keep a stronger player in the game, they were swayed by the possibility of a three-way split, which could make them lose a former Rana member.

That would have happened if Mzi and Vanessa voted for Lezel, the guys for Vanessa and the girls for Mzi.

The tribe, of course, don't know this, but Mzi will now secretly join Brigitte on Dead Man's Island and, at an opportune time in the future, they will get the opportunity to fight their way back into the game.

Bayly revealed this week that two outcasts from Dead Man's Island will be brought back later to have a final crack at the one million rand.

For the second week in a row, Gareth clinched the immunity challenge.

Next week, there's turmoil at camp Burba, as the gender fight continues and Vanessa gets fed-up with the rest.
