Comics have the power to offend and bring up issues that people don’t want brought up as with this case in South Africa where cartoonist, Johnathan Sharpiro, drew the leading party member, Jacob Zuma raping the justice system. I know for sure that the comic as described in the article could not be published in America. I’m not sure how it made it in South Africa. It brings to light series accusations in a way that is distasteful to say the least. I’m not sure how South Africa is going to deal with this comic. Hopefully it will be dealt with better than the infamous Danish cartoons.
This is not the disputed cartoon. Only one showing the situation.
