South African President Whines About Privacy After Being Lampooned by Cartoonist

Jacob Zuma appears to be a moron


Freedom of expression needs to be balanced to give the right to dignity and privacy to all South Africans, President Jacob Zuma said Monday, after he agreed to withdraw a defamation case against a newspaper cartoonist who depicted him poised to rape Lady Justice.

Zuma said his government's proposed Media Appeals Tribunal is designed to assure those rights in South Africa, where the president's complaints against some in the local press have brought this tension into sharp focus.
