TV show, Uyajola, has been surrounded by controversy since the first time it aired. While many South Africans were entertained by the show, which was inspired by America's Cheaters, others do not approve at all.

In the latest episode, an unfaithful man was assaulted by a very angry woman while the show's security did nothing to help him.

At one point, the man was restrained and forced to remain in the volatile situation.

Viewers were not happy about how things played out and they started complaining. Even local entertainer, Somizi, wasn't a fan of the man's treatment.

ZAlebs reported that Shouneez Martin, from the BCCSA (Broadcasting Complaints Commission of South Africa), has confirmed that some of the complaints they received were about gender-based violence and language.

They have since sent the complaints to MultiChoice - which airs the Moja Love channel - and are awaiting their response.

Briefly.co.za gathered that a petition in June had called for the show to be cancelled, but Moja Love refused.
