Nando’s, Joost make up

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS - KASHIEFA AJAM

“JOOST if you’re not eat­ing at home, eat at Nando’s” – that was the jibe by fran­chise gi­ant Nando’s at Joost van der Westhuizen af­ter his sex tape with a strip­per went vi­ral in 2009.

But the for­mer Bok cap­tain has kissed and made up with Nando’s, and this week the chicken house re­leased a new print ad laud­ing his work sup­port­ing peo­ple with mo­tor neu­ron dis­ease.

“The dif­fer­ence Joost has per­son­ally made since then to the lives of those liv­ing with the dis­ease, their fam­i­lies and care­givers has made him an even greater hero among the peo­ple of South Africa,” said Nando’s chief ex­ec­u­tive Ge­off Whyte.

This week Nando’s gave Van der Westhuizen a framed copy of the print ad recog­nis­ing his char­i­ta­ble work, and made a do­na­tion of R100 000 to his J9 foun­da­tion.

Mean­while, Joost’s ex-wife Amor Vit­tone said in a mag­a­zine in­ter­view this week that she missed the love she once shared with Van der Westhuizen. She re­vealed how she was di­ag­nosed with de­pres­sion af­ter their mar­riage ended.
