Rainbows and Lollipops

South African politics bores me to tears. The average white South African has about as much political acumen as a pot plant. Childishly they voted YES and gave away their country in 1992  to a Marxist terrorist organisation called the ANC headed up by Nelson Mandela and somehow actually believed that suddenly we were all going to live together in perfect harmony holding hands around the camp fires at night singing various renditions of Khumbaya my Lord as one big happy rainbow nation. Despite being warned that this would lead to disaster, uncontrollable crime, economic implosion and rampant corruption, they buried their heads in the sand, determined to believe in a world of rainbows and lollipops and now that Nelson Mandela and then Thabo Mbeki paved the way for Jacob Zuma who is probably one of the single most corrupt politicians on the planet, they suddenly take to the streets demanding that he resign and then actually think that they’ve one something. I got so sick and tired of the short sighted and childish stupidity of blaming Jacob Zuma for the troubles of South Africa that I decided to create this cartoon as a parody on another controversial cartoon by South African political cartoonist, Jonathan Shapiro, in which he showed south Africa being raped by Zuma. To me Zuma is the symptom and not the cause. The cause can only be seen by taking a damn hard look in the mirror.
