Zuma’s Spear – “Get Over It” says Tselane Tambo

Recently we all saw the magnificent the painting of President Jacob Zuma where his genitals were exposed. It’s safe to say the President isn’t happy. The SA Students’ Congress (Sasco) said on Monday that the painting is an attack on the African Culture.

“This arrogance is ideological and an attack to the very value and moral systems of the majority African people and many other religious persuasions,” president Ngoako Selamolela said in a statement.

Zuma has 26 wives and 23 children (that we know of) and he was accused of raping a young woman and is the head of a very corrupt government. Are these the morals and values they are refering to?

The Spear is part of Brett Murray's Hail to the Thief II exhibition at the Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg

Tselane Tambo ( daughter of the late ANC veteran Oliver Tambo) posted the following message on a social networking site:

“So the Pres JZ has had his portrait painted and he doesn’t like it. Do the poor enjoy poverty? Do the unemployed enjoy hopelessness? Do those who can’t get housing enjoy homelessness? He must get over it. No one is having a good time. He should inspire the reverence he craves. This portrait is what he inspired. Shame neh! “


I couldn’t have said it better myself!
