May 21, 2012 | MOIPONE MALEFANE |

OFFENDED by the portrait of their dad with his genitals hanging out, President Jacob Zuma's daughters yesterday broke their silence and described the image as "the straw that broke the camels back ..."

    Hi there RAdioKillah, I was not judging Juju, but I just don't agree with his disrespect for our elders, you maybe in politics or business but at the end of the day you have to have respect for your fellow humanbeings even if they don't respect themselves.

    Tzozo1 you are hopelessly naive it does not mean if women are standing their ground it applies to all the women in south africa, which rock have you been hiding under, let me tell you somthing South Africa is still going through a transsion and things are haven't changed for all the women in South Africa I am taking this conclusion from what I see happening in my community there are still women who depend on men for their livellyhood and you and I cannot judge them because we do not know their circumstances, there is still a long way to go until women are completely liberated like me and some of my peers and I think I am clever enough to not only understand my liberation as a young women in South Africa but understand that there are still women who are trapped in this cruel situation of gender inequality, you are the foolish one to think that just because you are liberated does not mean that everyone is and that to me is an insult to the fight that is going on to liberate every women in South Africa. By your own theory you also do not deserve respect if you are blond enough to think if there would be a university in INKANDLA it would be of lower quality, because I had an aunt who went to the university of Zululand up until she graduated with her masters in psychology she was a excellent psychologist who was respected in her field, and as for my education background I just want to tell you that I was fortunate enough to go to one of the best university in south africa but I cannot dismiss the hardships my fellow south africans are going through and think that everything is rosy just because things are rosy for me and I had the opportunities are young and old people only dream of.

    @somaartakeit. I like it when idiots start running around and touch this and that, Tatane family neh! I suppose in your eyes president Zuma lead the attack on Tatane and killed him. Who is that staying abroad and ashamed of being lead by a man who just make babies and marry. Haaahaaahaaaa! You would be funny if you were not so pathetic. Ashamed because you are worried what your white hosts could be thinking of you? Look sweetheart, we do our business as we see fit just like everyone Sprague/her business. We ask no approval from no one. And as for you save your embarassment and concentrate on being a second class citizen of whatever country you are in.

    Your insults don't bother me much as I expect the enemy to continue with its distractive ways. But here I just want to give you a free lesson on SA politics, Hector Peterson had nothing to do with ANC, he was a young boy killed by your masters or uncles while peacefully marching against the use of Afrikaans language medium of teaching.

    @somaartakeit. That's the thing about you people who have two cents extra than others, you think it can buy the way the rest of us think. We do not know you and from what you articulate we can tell that you are either white or you have served white masters. Let's tell you about the ANC, We know it and we know that it liberated us. On the other hand I feel that you are pained by the role it played, shame you will have to be strong.
    Before you judge people because of your half cent, you have no clue who you say is ignorant. ANC is not for the idiots and the ignorant as you purports. Some of us have travelled the world extensively more that you can ever dream of considering that you dangle your two cents so much. So you see, never think you are talking to someone living in squatter camp because we defend the dignity of a black man. Those squatter camps are indoors by your masters as they jailed people for daring to come and live in Towns and cities.
    Lastly you blabber about South Africas influential role, it is the gateway to Africa despite what haters like you say. It was specifically invited to be a member of organisations like IBSA and BRICS. It is invited in most African countries to resolve conflicts and bandla it does. So please your hatred does not necessarily change how things happen because you wish them to be otherwise.

    Tzozoka1, the only stupid thing here is you and your stupid comments which you should have kept to your stupid self, maybe you live in the srburbs, but let me tellyoui something, most of the men in our communities act much foolishly than the president, but we do not go around painting their dirty laundry for the world to see you are such a fool, if your father goes around doing stupid things does that mean he shouldn't be respected as a human being and your father, then you must come from a twisted family if your parents thought you to only respect adults if they earn your respect.PS

    @ThembiWalter&Tzozoka The former, go to school you have a chance and stop writing twaak . You know you have a chance president Zuma never had an opportunity. But do you know what is amazing about him? Is that he has achieved what you can only dream of. To the latter, he fought for the freedom you now enjoy disregarding that other people suffered for it and others lost their lives. You could have been impimpi and an agent. Chances are, during the struggle, you did not even pick up even one stone let alone throwing one.

    As for you gogosboy and your hypocritical comment comes to show you are a real gogosboy and your gogo has been doing all the thinking for you and now that it's time for you to read a real topic and reponds, you can't think of anything clever to say, I do not support our president sleeping with many women, but how many old men go around night after night buying sex from protitutes, thats why the industry is still booming, why don't you post a comment telling them to zip up.the issue at hand is not about the president sleeping around it's about this stupid artist who does not seem to have a creative streak degrading the president a human being.

    @ Lindelwa you don't have to be emotional sisi. its Zuma the men we talking about here, he's going to disappoint you. People like Zuma needs to hear and see their true reflection from other people's eyes. we don't need to drag other people into these convesation but lets keep our focus on the men on the picture.

    @Godosboy and Njenjecoach you really dont have respect for elders, how dare you support such a disrespectful and resists kind of a photo. Like any man, our president does what other man like you do. Surely your father cheated on your mother, do you think it would good for him to be exposed in such a manner?

    I wonder how old are you to talk to an adult like that. Even that child you claim its a child half his age is a grown up woman in her late 30's or early 40's. You all speak like he molested a teenager. Whether you like it or not none of these women cry foul about marrying him. Whether I redicule him or not IT IS AFRICAN CULTURE! He did not invent it, it has been practised for donkey years. Some of you have as many women UNKNOWN and you act as if you are angels SHAME ON YOU!

    @Njenjecoach. You know you are just unbelievable. So because its Zuma he doesn't deserve human dignity and have no rights at all? What kind of people are you? You know if something happened to some RACIST, you'd defend him like your life depended on it just like that ......of a security guard who was prepared to .... that black HERO and disregarded that white man who actually was the one who started to deface the stupid painting. So you see there are many of you.

    Sies to you Thandy, this is not about being entitled, no matter what the Zuma's do behind closed doors no person deserves to be displayed in such a distasteful manner, you must truly be sick to even agree with this painting whether you are black or white, you must really be ignorant to not see what is wrong about this painting, I don't agree with alot of the things the Zuma's are all about but displaying Mr Zuma in such a manner is sick.

    You know hatred is such an ugly disease and it feeds with the one who harbours it. Legitimise was the partner of Mandela's nephew , but because for some reason that you guys hate the president so much so that you can't even remember that he was not alone. In your hearts the president is such an enemy you can't even see beyond your hatred. Even his children deserve to be insulted. What makes you think he's ignorant? South Africans, I wish you knew what you obviously so ignorant about.

    Shame Thandy umqodo wakho uhlangahlangene, what does this issue ya Khulubuse have to do with the issue at hand, no one has disputed that what Khulubuse and Madiba's grandson did is wrong in so many ways, but what I don't get is can't you understand that we are dealing with this artist stripping Zuma's dignity to shreds here and not what the Zuma clan is doing in business or politics, let me rephrase this to you as if speaking to a two year old, WE ARE SPEAKING ABOUT THE STUPID ARTIST WHO IS UNCURTH ENOUGH TO DRAW A PICTURE OF AN ELDER'S GENITALS AND DISPLAY IT PUBLICLY,everyone in South Africa has a right to dignity even you "Thandy" and no one should be disgraced in that manner be you a politician, crude business man, a drunk, pastor , unruly teenager even a serial rapists, you have never seen any artist drawing the genitals of any serial rapist in this country even the most notorious, because they have rights, but then what gives this idiot a right to insult Zuma.
    May 21, 2012

    THANDY

    yes they have entitlement syndrome , khulubuse didnt pay the poor miners who worked their ass off for their salaries, Edward didnt pay the event company that organized his wedding ,he didnt event return the ring that they borrowed him, WHY? mantuli didnt pay her helper, and also spent 30 000 of the NGO's money on herself WHY? EVERY SOUTH AFRICAN KNOWS THAT IF U USE A SERVICE OF ANY KIND U MUST PAY FOR IT . THEY SEEM TO EXPECT THINGS FOR FREE, maybe in yr own little mind u also think they deserve things forfree

    LindelwaMkhize

    You obiviously got your own little mind twisted by all of this maybe this was all too much for your little brain to comment about, because if you understood the serverity of this whole matter you wouldn't be saying the Zuma's have an entitled mentality, and if you had the intellectual capacity to understand why I felt you were not against the painting you would have understood why you were for the painting, because you are contradicting yourself by saying the painting is distasteful, but then you turn around and say "the painting is for your ignorant father." and "to the zumas with their entitlement mentality" this actually overrides you thinking the painting is distasteful and makes it seem you see Zuma in the same light as the artist who actually painted the stupid painting in the first place, so please decide what the topic is about before you let your little finger go crazy with the keyboard and start accusing people of not reading right and spitting bile on you, the topic is not about what the Zuma's are all about, but that this particular picture is down right disrespectful. PS

    this painting has nothing to do with the poor miners, its about his personal business that he does behind closed doors which I must add MIGHT be less than what YOU do behind closed doors so don't judge and yes some of us are appalled by this so no don't leave us out of it only you cause some of us share the same sentiments as this woman's.

    Thandy charity begins at home, clearly you were not brought up well, if you were brought up in a family that has values and morals you'd clearly see that this is a degrading, disrespectful, pathetic art. No matter what he did, he is still an elder, leader of S.A etc. Hating the guy doesn't give anyone the right to degrade him like that. Sies on you. I feel sorry for your kids because they'll be brought up with no morals or respect for elders.mnxa!

    If charity began at home then our president would have thought of his family first before doing things that will come negetively towards him and family. to him it's just a political plot but for his family it's a disgress as much they are saying disrespectful amongst themselves they know that their father in his own doing is creating this tention, we must know that the mother of the said daughter is divorced to msholozi " I wonder why " and we must be aware that the painter was his peer.

    Again@Tzozoka1, I am fully grown thats why I understand that I am not in a position to crucify Mr Zuma for his past or present mistakes, and him being a president does not make him more or less of a human being, he still does the same things other guys do that human nature, there are so many guys who still sleep around without condoms because they are in a authority position in relationships that why we have clinics and hospitals that are packed to capacity with different people 20 days a month coming to fetch ARV's, and hear me right I am not saying what they are doing is right but it happens because they are human beings, they don't do it in the name of culture, please don't be naive and judgemental, If you disrespect your parents because they have not earned your respect then it's their fault because they haven't taught you right, because in my culture you respect elder regardless, and this does not benefit them but it benefits you in the end.

    Not sure whether it's your reasoning capacity that is a pin size here or you forgot your reading glasses or you are dyslectic, did you not see the part where I say I am not saying sleeping around without a condom is right but it happens, people do things wrong or right whether we agree with it or not, and stop being a chauvinist you know what by saying I sound like a women, your are too naive to understand my points anyways, because like it or not if there weren't men that are in a position of power in relationships, then the health dept.would not be spending millions on campaigns to make young girls aware of sugar daddies, until you are grown enough to understand the different psychological positions our people are in you will never understand why ills in society still happen even though we are trying to fight them, and by the way I am educated both in life and acedamics, and background is very good because I come from a family that taught me never to insult my elders regardless of what they have done.So lastly I am not forMr Zuma sleeping around but I definitely do not agree with silly artist and YOU who ever you real name is stripping him of his right to human dignity no where in the constitution does it say a person must be respected only when they have earned it.lastly your background really speaks volumes if you have a nerve to call a 70 year old man a Stupid, Shame feel sorry for your parents, I am 27 years old and my parents would give me a beating of my life if they even hear by rumour that I called an elder a stupid even if he behave foolishly.

    @Tzozoka1. You know why they looked respectable in your eyes? Because you respect their education background. You know why I respect president Zuma? Irrespective of what you and other haters say, he has done much more than the intellectuals did. He is accessible, created departments that make it easier for women and children to be catered for. Created a department of veterans so that our veterans could be well looked after. Stopped Americans and Europeans to come with their strong currencies to buy our land as we cannot compete. Guess what your intellectual sold our land piece by piece to foreigners. Go check who owns the Waterfront in Cape Town. What Zuma inspires is that he can take very unpopular decisions on your behalf and you continue to hurl insults at him. You know what? Only Zuma are sure that MK AND SOLAR members in the Defence Force go with full retirement benefits, counting their years of service from exile. ONLY HIM. So before you hurl insults GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!

    JUJU-Junia

    the mere fact that you associate the painting with racism creates tensions... now would it have made any difference if the man in the painting was painted white?

    the constitution that we fought for allows and protects the right to freedom of expression...now if the painting is to be removed would that not be destroying the very constitution the we love and protect?

    is it wrong for an artist to have a creative imagination that is not limited? sometime we have to laugh at our selves in relation to how other people see(picture) us and not always expect to be seen in a good picture.

    a lot of comedians (black&white) had made nasty,rude and disgraceful comments about the president did we say they are racist/disrespectful of our country and president or did we just laugh it off?

    why can't we just laugh this off and continue to build a south Africa in which blacks and whites do not tolerate one another but really love and live in peace without raising the race card every time one of us makes a mistake.
