Cartoonist Jonathan Shapiro, well known as Zapiro, has found himself in hot water once again following his latest cartoon in the Daily Maverick.
The cartoon shows President Jacob Zuma unzipping his trousers while one of the controversial Gupta brothers takes down his pants, seemingly getting ready to “rape” a woman lying down wearing a South African flag.
The woman is held down by a representative from the Gupta-owned New Age and ANN7, State Security Minister David Mahlobo and Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini.
702 Breakfast host, Xolani Gwala, says the cartoon was insensitive to rape survivors.
This is a white male who has a platform [a] way with words and can express himself. What about hundreds of thousands of women who may have been raped, who have similar images and things going on in their minds because of this cartoon.— Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast host
It's time that he thinks about his role as a commentator.— Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast host
