President Jacob Zuma has described Brett Murray’s controversial painting The Spear, in which he was depicted as Lenin with his genitals exposed, as “rather vulgar”.

“There will be individuals who think differently. I don’t think in a country you can have people thinking and feeling exactly the same. I think it is [that] people have got their own ideas, they want to express them. I might have a view about it, but some people might have a different view about it.
