Full bench to hear Zuma painting case

2012-05-24 07:47
Johannesburg - A full bench of the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg will hear an ANC application on Thursday to have a painting depicting President Jacob Zuma with his genitals exposed taken down.

Judge Kathree Setiloane has granted permission for e.tv and eSat to broadcast the court proceedings live.

The painting, titled The Spear, was part of Cape Town artist Brett Murray's exhibition Hail to the Thief II at the Goodman Gallery, in Johannesburg.

The ANC wanted the gallery to remove the painting. It also wanted the City Press newspaper to remove a photo of the painting from its website.

The application was postponed on Tuesday to allow all parties to file further papers to the court.

Zuma's children would also join the case to have the painting removed from the gallery. It was not immediately clear which of Zuma's children would join the case.

Murray had also applied to be part of proceedings.
