Zuma’s Penis Appears On New Painting

Another painting showing South Africa President Jacob Zuma’s penis exposed has gone on display.

Entitled Umshini Wam  the painting shows Zuma in traditional regalia in full flow with leg up and showing his ‘executive staff member’ hanging out.

It is part of an exhibition called the Our Fathers which includes works from Brett Murray of The Spear fame.

It was one by Ayanda Mabulu and is priced at R75,000. It is hanging (no pun intended) at AVA Gallery in Cape Town.

Check out the painting below:


Umshini-Wam-(Weapon-of-Mass-Destruction) by Ayanda Mabulu

What will the reaction to this one be? The artist says he respectfully engaging his elder. Says Mabulu

The painting… is a respectful one. He is clothed in his culture. He is clothed in his manhood. Only a Eurocentric viewpoint would see him as naked.

He is not naked; I did not paint him with an uncircumcised penis. “This is a metaphor that shows he is not a boy; he is a man, an elder, a father, a leader

Wonder what Zuma thinks.
