EWN apologises over offence caused by the ‘Congress of Clowns’ cartoon.

Eyewitness News (EWN) has apologized for any offence caused by the ‘Congress of Clowns’ cartoon published on Wednesday. "Yesterday we published a cartoon that sparked debate and criticism. We have read and heard many views and received much feedback on this matter, and taken all of them to heart," said EWN's Editor-in-chief Katy Katopodis.

 Many have criticized the cartoon, which depicted Cabinet members as clowns and South African voters as ‘poephols’ (assholes), as racist and derogatory.
