New Zealand Immigration authorities have given South African Chef Albert Buitenhuis and his wife Marthie a 23 month Visa extension after he appealed an earlier extension on grounds he was too fat.
The Chef who weights 130kg and is 1.78m tall has struggled with his weight and now needs to start from scratch after he lost his home and thousands of dollars fighting his case in court.
In his personal Blog, his long suffering wife Marthe explains the trials and tribulations they have gone through since they both relocated from South Africa to New Zealand. Theirs is a cautionary tale to most Africans who wrongly assume life is often better abroad.
