Enough of "The Spear".

31 May 2012, 15:25

Can we now put “The Spear” behind us and give Jacob Zuma back his dignity and let us focus on some real news for once.

The Goodman Gallery and Brett Murray has had their claim to fame. I do not want to see Helen Zille, Pieter Mulder, Thuli Madonsella or any other political figure naked in public, no not even Julius. 

Surely there should be some limits to freedom of speech and freedom of expression otherwise everyone can just

Do and say as they like in the name of  "ART".

On Tuesday some squatters lost all their earthly belongings in a fire at the Woodlane squatter camp in the east of Pretoria and this morning I saw that Honda Kyalami is giving Chengetai Chauke a new motorbike after he lost his in the fire, well done Honda Kyalami,

people are donating food and blankets. This is real news about humanity. 

An old lady and the minor in her care was murdered in Delmas,  we have hijackings, rapes and child molestation, unemployment  and we make a big fuss about a painting. What has become of our passion for people, real people with clothes on, not naked ones ??
