Commission takes issue with Zapiro depiction of Zuma

A commission with a really, really long name (“Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities”) has taken issue with Jonathan Shapiro’s (AKA Zapiro) continued use of a shower head drawn above South Africa President Jacob Zuma. The group calls it “culturally, religiously and linguistically unprecedented to attack each other on the basis of a forgiven past.”

Zapiro first depicted Zuma after a Zuma admitted that he took a shower after having unprotected sex with an HIV-positive woman as a means of reducing the risk of contracting the virus.
