Is South Africa’s media losing its freedom, thanks to political influence?
I drew this cartoon during September, but my eNCA.com editor(s) chose not to publish it, saying that it was unlikely Oscar Pistorius would go to jail.
On 21 October 2014, Oscar Pistorius was sentenced to five years in jail.
The show has been good, but it must go on. Brilliant veteran cartoonist ‘Chip’ (who was recently sacked from Independent’s Cape Argus) has taken up my reins.
Less than two years ago, no mainstream online political cartoon positions existed. I am proud to have worked with both EWN and eNCA.com in creating a completely new and sustainable platform for South African cartoonists, particularly in a dwindling newspaper landscape.
While I take a few days off to freshen up, do buy my second book. I’ll appreciate it.
It probably is indeed lost on them.
The West decides to change her exploitative lifestyle.
At which stage are you? My guess is that most people are at the fifth stage.
As per our president’s own words.
For Oscar so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten time to charity, so that he might not perish in jail. Amen.
Just something fun (and a bit dark) to end the week.
Journalists focus on what matters, in the Shrien Dewani murder trial.
The ANC, in Gauteng, has done a full circle, saying that etolls should be scrapped. Ouroboros indeed.
Mark Shuttleworth takes down the South African Reserve Bank after warning them.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu is unhappy about the Dalai Lama not being granted a visa to enter South Africa (again).
And there’s no stopping humans, baby.
The ANC’s Mathole Motshekga said, in parliament, that Jacob Zuma is not responsible for Nkandla. The good news is that South Africans now know who is indeed responsible.
