‘Naked or not, Zuma for a second term’

2012-05-24 10:25

Hundreds of ANC supporters, bearing placards with messages such as: “Naked or not, Zuma for a second term”, have chosen to sing rather than watch court proceedings on the big-screen TV outside the South Gauteng High Court today.

They are supporting President Jacob Zuma who is seeking a court order against the Goodman Gallery, City Press and Brett Murray for the removal of Murray’s portrait of the president, in which his genitals are exposed.

Pritchard and President streets in the city centre have been closed by the Johannesburg metro police.

Many ANC supporters have handwritten messages on their placards, including: “Murray polygamy is my culture as much as abortion and sodomy are your culture” and “10 000 people this is the power of Umshini Wami. I like it!!”.

Some of their songs include: “Ndimis’isibhozo, uZuma uzophatha (I swear Zuma will be in power)”.
