Fat bastard reduced to begging

The saffa fat bastard facing deportation for being a fat bastard is now on the bludge instead of trimming off a few more kilos.

A South African man facing deportation because he is “too fat” for New Zealand is appealing to the public for financial help.

Albert Buitenhuis and his wife Marthie are waiting for a decision from Associate Minister of Immigration Nikki Kaye over whether they can stay in the country.

The pair moved to New Zealand in 2007 and have worked in a Christchurch restaurant ever since. 

However, after starting the application for permanent residency, Buitnehuis’ health came under scrutiny from Immigration New Zealand (INZ).

They were told they would be deported because, along with a knee condition, Buitenhuis’ obesity was too much of a potential strain on the health system. He weighs 130kg, having lost 30kg since arriving in the country.

Buitnehuis has now started a Facebook page asking for donations to help the pair stay in the country.

He and his wife had “gone broke” fighting to stay in New Zealand and could see no end in sight to the struggle.

They’d have been better to invest in some gym memberships and a a weight watchers programme.
