Nando’s Pulls Ad But Reason Is Lame

Nando’s has just pulled the ad that caused a lot of uproar because of its depiction of President Robert Mugabe.

They say the main reason was that it put its management, staff and customers at risk.

I just passed by their Samora Machel Ave  sit-in outlet and did a snap survey. It seemed as if none of the staff there or the customers were aware of any threat. The insinuation in the statement is a bit silly unless someone scribbled a threat in a scrawny handwriting and sent it to Innscor.

We all know an apology was never going to come. I am glad they have pulled the ad, but, come on man… you could have done better than that.

We did say the fall-out would be complicated.
