2006-11-29 Jacob 'Laduma' Zuma

This is a spec painting of South Africa's great bad-man, Jacob Zuma. He's the presidential hopeful who was accused of rape and acquitted.

He did admit to having unprotected sex with the woman, even though he knew she was HIV positive. He claims that he 'had a shower aferwards', and believes that that would ensure that he doesn't get the virus.

He's also involved in all sorts of corruption allegations.

And the bad news is that he is South Africa's equivalent of George Dubbya Bush. He's likely (in my cynical opinion, anyway) to be elected in our next 'democratic elections'. Which is, frankly, terrifying.

The populace love him. They cheered when he was let off the hook. This country could be in some very serious trouble.

Back to the painting... I'm kinda hoping one of the big newspapers in South Africa will use it for their year-end publication. Cos Mr Zuma will be sure to feature as a superstar personality of the decade. Sheesh. What a loser.

This painting was made in Mugg & Bean, Cresta, with innocuous music playing in the background, using ArtRage 2.2 painting software, on my Toshiba Tecra M4 tablet pc. My arm is burning as I speak. All will be revealed.
