This cartoon was published in the South African Sunday Times on the 7th September 2008. The cartoon depicts ANC president Jacob Zuma (obligatory shower faucet on his head) unbuckling his pants and being egged on to “Go for it, boss” by ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe, who — along with alliance leaders Julius Malema, Zwelinzima Vavi and Blade Nzimande — is shown pinning the Lady of Justice to the ground.
The Zapiro website posted the following statement:
While this cartoon has certainly created a growing furor from the Tripartite Alliance (three part alliance between the African National Congress (ANC), the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU) and the South African Communist Party (SACP) it has started more public discussion than ever before on the subject of Jacob Zuma and the South African Justice system. While the ANC says the cartoon is not funny, Zapiro and the editor of the Sunday Times say the ANC and other criticism of cartoon misses the point.
