Ayanda Mabulu's naked Mandela-Zuma painting sparks anger

Visual artist Ayanda Mabulu has again engulfed himself in controversy after he painted an intimate picture of former president Nelson Mandela and current president Jacob Zuma. He is facing a severe backlash on social media. 

Mabulu has a notorious reputation for painting such explicit pictures of the president. Reacting to the paintings, The Nelson Mandela Foundation has issued a statement saying that though it respects the right to freedom of expression it finds the “painting distasteful”. 

The governing ANC says it finds the work “grotesque, inflammatory and of bad taste – but the party also defends the right for the artist to express himself.
