I won't stop painting until Zuma leaves office - Ayanda Mabulu

2016-07-14 08:55

Controversial artist Ayanda Mabulu is ready to physically defend his artwork depicting President Jacob Zuma in a sexual act.WATCH

Durban – “When I see Ayanda Mabulu, I am going to wrap my fingers around his neck and throttle him.”

This is what President Jacob Zuma’s son, Edward, plans to do to the artist for again painting his father engaging in a sexual act, this time with one of the Gupta brothers.

“I need to see Ayanda so that I can strangle him. He needs a good beating,” said Zuma.

The painting, on display at the Ruben Pasha gallery at Constitution Hill in Johannesburg, depicts Zuma and one of the Gupta brothers, Atul, in a sexual act.

The title of the work is (Ingwe Ayizidli ngamaBala isakuluma iKaka okwesiHlunu seNyama) Ayityiwa iKaka nokuba ungalamba ungagabha. This translates to A tiger does not take pride in its stripes when it bites shit thinking it's a piece of meat, we don't eat shit no matter how hungry you can be, you'll vomit.

The painting is part of an exhibition on the status quo after apartheid.

Zuma said Mabulu was rude and not brought up well.

“I am not going to allow this guy to disrespect my father. How would he feel if I swore at his mother? Just because our parents are leaders it does not mean that we are not sensitive or heartless. We also have feelings.”

Zuma said Mabulu was welcome to report him to the police for his statements.

“I will not allow him to insult my family and my father like this and hide behind democracy.”

He said Mabulu was being used.

“My father is currently on a state visit, working for Mabulu’s grandchildren. There is an agenda given to him by the DA, EFF and other senior ANC members. They have failed to remove him and are now trying every trick in the book,” said Zuma.

He warned Mabulu in isiZulu that, “Izintaba azihlangani, kodwa abantu bayahlangana, alibambe lingashoni.” Loosely translated it means "when we cross paths, there will be war".

Mabulu questioned why Zuma singled him out when others had openly criticised the president.

“If he is radical and this is how this family solves things, through violence, then it is fine. But this is not what we voted for in the democratic South Africa as the people of the country,” he said.

Mabulu has painted several works depicting Zuma naked and in compromising positions. Umshini Wam, 2012, shows the president wearing traditional Zulu regalia with his right leg raised and his genitals exposed.
