Of course President Jacob Zuma is going to be in support of this Protection of Information Bill. He’s tried to sue the cartoonist Zapiro TWICE for, let’s think about this people…. illustrations. These cartoons were commenting on the President’s ridiculous statements about taking a shower as a preventative measure to contracting HIV, after sleeping with an infected family friend. (Not to mention other unflattering information that’s come to light, thanks to good, thorough reporting.)
And in case you didn’t know, during the Apartheid era Zapiro was hunted down by police, jailed and feared for his life because he made satirical comment through his cartoons about the National Party.
