    Support pours in for Zuma over vulgar painting

    Support continued to pour in on Sunday for South African President Jacob Zuma over a vulgar painting that depicts him with his genitals exposed.

    Support gained momentum after the African National Congress (ANC) launched an urgent court case to stop the display and distribution of the painting from the Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg and the website of the City Press newspaper.

    Some cabinet ministers threw their weight behind the ANC, urging the gallery and the newspaper to remove the portrait.

    Justice Minister Jeff Radebe called for a ban on the painting, saying a criminal case of crimen injuria should be opened.

    "If that thing is called art, it is an insult to the dignity not only of the president but any human being. The dignity of the president has been violated," Radebe said.

    Arts and Culture Minister Paul Mashatile said while the government believed in the right of artists to freedom of expression, it should not dehumanise fellow citizens.

    "If an artwork doesn't respect reconciliation, it doesn't contribute to nation building. We can't have a situation where we are insulting each other every day," said Mashatile.

    In its latest attempt to stop the display and distribution of the painting, the government issued a statement, saying:

    "The government calls upon the Goodman Gallery to take down the offensive artwork and further calls upon the media to stop publicising the untasteful portrait. We also call upon the media to be more circumspect in what they publish as we rebuild a South Africa that was ravaged by apartheid."

    But the gallery and the newspaper have refused to budge, saying that would mean censorship.

    In his first reaction to the painting, Zuma said he was "shocked, and felt personally offended and violated" when he saw the copy of the painting for the first time.

    The image has been displayed to "millions within and outside the country," and that despite its removal, "it will continue to exist in the minds of those people who have seen it or had access to it," Zuma said in court papers served to the gallery and the newspaper.

    But the removal of the portrait from the gallery and City Press's website "will ensure the harm caused ... is limited to those who have seen it or had access to it."

    Zuma said the ANC takes exception "to the symbolism the portrait uses in order to portray the ANC through its president" as responsible for "abuses of power, corruption and political dumbness" -- the theme of the exhibition.

    Zuma's family also came up to show support for the president.

    "It (the painting) seeks to take away our father's dignity, and destroy his true character and stature as a man, a father, and a leader of the ANC and South African society at large," said a family statement.

    The painting has sparked a national debate on the issue of freedom of expression and the right to dignity.

    The Twitter website has been filled with messages, most of them expressing disgust at the painting.

    The painting, by artist Brett Murray, was distasteful and faded into insignificance when viewed against the backdrop of the bigger challenges facing the country, said the South African renowned poet and cultural activist, Mongane Wally Serote.

    "We are making something trivial important. We are blowing it out of proportion. Whatever inspired that art was completely mediocre and distasteful," he said.

    Jamaa amekosea sana hapo kwenye picha kuandika '... no apology to president Zuma...' Zapiro hapa kafanya kosa kubwa sana la kifasihi kushirikisha picha ya kuchora inayojieleza kuwa aliyechorwa ni nani na jina la picha inayemuelezea. Asinge mention neno Zuma hata kidogo, angeweza kutumia neno president which is a general title.

    Kwa picha hii mtu akikufungulia civil charge anakufilisi, japo inategemea na sheria za nchi husika. Marekani nobody cares na kufungua kesi kwa issue kama hii utaonekana mwehu.

    Sijaelewa vizuri sheria na taratibu za huko South Africa, maana kama kumbukumbu zangu zipo vizuri basi ni kwamba Ze utamu walipomchora Kikwete kwa style inayofanana na hii ya Zuma, ilifungiwa ndani ya masaa tu, na hatujawahi kuiona tena. Inashangaza kwamba huko south africa, website inachora na desplay habari kama hizi, halafu serikali inaargue? Kweli Zuma hayupo serious? Au hana usalama wa taifa huko?

    Mkuu unaongelea vitu viwili tofauti kabisa. Ze utamu hawakumchora Kikwete bali walichukua picha yake halisi na kuifanyia photoshopping na picha nyingine halisi iliyo chafu. Hiyo ni jinai na si usanii, na hata kuchora picha ya uchi pia si usanii ila hii ya Zapiro ni usanii maana hapo kuna shower badala ya manhood.

    Ili uheshimike/uheshimiwe unaanza kwa kujiheshimu kwanza.
    Zapiro ndicho anachomueleza mkuu Zuma, mbali ya kuwa mkuu wa
    Nchi tabia zako chafu zinaendelea kukuumbua, nasi tutazianika
    hadharani kama hivi. Ni juu ya Zuma kuacha au kuendelea na nijuu ya
    Wananchi wenzie na pengine jumuia ya kimataifa kumkosoa na
    kumsawazisha. Kashfa ni pale unaposingiziwa au kuzushiwa!
    Liwapo kweli hata kama lina ladha ya kashfa linabaki kuwa
    UKWELI na madai yote hayo juu ya Zuma ni ya ukweli, haitakuwa
    rahisi kulipeleka swala hili Mahakamani watazidi kujichafua kwa kuliweka
    kwenye vyombo vya habari kwa muda mrefu.(maoni yangu: Jujuman)

    Tazama katika video jinsi muafrika 'anavyohudumiwa' na jinsi mzungu 'anavyohudumiwa' japo walifanya kosa aina moja.
    Kweli safari bado ni ndefu!

    Hii issue kaikuza mwenyewe Zuma. Angeuchuna watu wangetembelea exhibition na kucheka cheka mchezo unaisha. Kitendo cha yeye kuingiza ANC, mara sijui mahakama kimefanya watu wengi zaidi kutoka ndani na hata nje ya South Africa kuwa na shauku ya kuiona hiyo picha inayoleta mgogoro. Lakini kwa umri wake huyu hana hobbie nyingine?
