Nando’s reacts to new Government of National Unity Cabinet

Chicken fast food chain Nando’s has reacted to the new National Executive announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa on Sunday evening.

Ramaphosa named a 77-member cabinet at the Union Buildings in Tshwane after calling a ‘family meeting’.

It was the second time in a matter of days that Nando’s had taken to social media after it posted after the Proteas’ heartbreaking T20 World Cup defeat to India on Saturday.

DID YOU KNOW

Nando’s is a South African multinational fast casual chain that specialises in Portuguese flame-grilled peri-peri style chicken.

It was founded in Rosettenville in Johannesburg in 1987 by Portugal-born Fernando Duarte and South Africa-born Robert Brozin.

Upon visiting a Portuguese-Mozambican takeaway named Chickenland and trying the chicken with peri peri, the pair bought the restaurant for about R80 000.

They renamed the restaurant Nando’s after Fernando’s first-born son.

Nando’s operates over 1 200 outlets in 30 countries.

Their logo depicts the Rooster of Barcelos, one of Portugal’s most common symbols.
