South Africa’s Explicit Zuma Painting Row Rolls On

A provocative portrait featuring South Africa's President Jacob Zuma with his genitals exposed has caused a flurry of outrage among supporters who call the satirical piece offensive. The original painting was removed last week from the Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg after it was defaced, but a local newspaper ran a photo of the portrait uncensored and hundreds took to the streets of Johannesburg in protest.
