ANC to sue over Zuma painting

Pretoria, 18 May – (ANA) - South Africa's governing ANC says it will go to court after a gallery exhibited a painting with President Jacob Zuma's genitals hanging out.

Brett Murray's painting is an "abuse of freedom of artistic expression" said ANC spokesman Jackson Mthembu. He said he had asked lawyers to get the Johannesburg gallery to remove the $14,000 (£9,000) painting, The Spear. President Zuma, who has four wives, has sued local media companies 11 times for defamation. (ANA)
