Artists to march against painting

2012-05-23 00:00

SOUTH African Traditional Music Awards (Satma) founder Dumisani Goba has organised a protest march in Durban this Saturday against the painting by Brett Murray showing President Jacob Zuma with his genitals exposed.

“What this artist has done is actually to insult the president, what he has done is to call the president by his genitalia … it is in fact even worse when that someone goes on to draw your genitalia,” Goba said yesterday.

He said the march will feature traditional artists such as Mfiliseni Magubane and Phuzekhemisi and other community members and the ANC’s alliance partners Cosatu.

The march will begin at 10.30 am at the Dinizulu park and will proceed to the Durban City Hall where they will hand over a memorandum of grievances to the Justice Department
