Profiled: Zapiro pushes boundaries in South Africa

Fox News profiles Jonathan Shapiro (“Zapiro”):

Shapiro, 55, has made a career of stripping away taboos and artifice with satire. Sometimes he gets sued, most notably by President Jacob Zuma. The Mandela cartoon in April for The Times, a South African newspaper, was one of his gentler efforts and a commentary on a nation that showed promise on Mandela’s watch after the end of white rule in 1994 but grapples today with economic inequality, corruption and other ills.

Just about anytime I see a headline mentioning a cartoon controversy in South Africa, I immediately think of Zapiro.
