Oscar goes to jail

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.

Leaving eNCA.com

Because I am a freelancer, I submit work to various publications and other corporates, some more frequently than others. One, to which I have been regularly contributing since late 2013, is eNCA.com.

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.

Who’s responsible?

jerm-simpsons-zuma-nuclear

Doh!

This Homer Simpson parody was pulled on the grounds that there is “no evidence” to suggest that the president will benefit from a one-trillion-rand nuclear deal that is engulfed in secrecy and urgency.

UPDATE: Madam & Eve‘s comment is very similar to mine.
