dead weight

It looks like our fave president might be struggling in the build up to the ANC elective conference. Oh, I believe they call them dumbbells.

Oh Boycott !

What do you do with the press when it disagrees with you? When your attempts to put punitive press control laws in place stall, you simply push for a public boycott of the newspaper in question. Come on ANC, leadership not censorship!

In the pipeline

Normally you'd expect government departments to have problems with overspending on grant budgets. Not in the Eastern Cape where they've only spent 50 % of the allocation - incompetent dumbasses. Maybe this is an argument for appointing more women to these posts - they generally don't have a problem spending, especially if its somebody else's money !

Unlucky break

One of the advantages of working for a regional newspaper is that I also sometimes get called on to cartoon local events. Our local soccer team lost their final match to enter the playoffs for promotion into the Premier Soccer League. Go Blackburn Rovers, better luck next year.

smear of the nation

The ongoing saga of the president's spear painting. What I've learnt from the whole debacle is that everyone's got an opinion, mostly misinformed. Mr. President, some free advice, don't always grab a big stick and beat the hornet's nest, just ignore it and you wont get stung. free advice 2, there are bigger problems that a couple of stings that you should rather be paying attention to. Unemployed youth and unhappy citizens are getting pretty stirred up too.

A load of bull

Consummate politician that he is, JZ weaves about and avoids the hard questions about the Youth Wage Subsidy while he allows the raging bulls of the opposition to lock horns.

another bunch

I am really quite a slacker. The problem with a tough daily deadline is that once my cartoon has been submitted, I tend to switch off and forget to post it here as well. So, here's a bunch that reflect the continuing woes of the place where I live. As regular viewers may have noticed, I habitually use the newspaper device in my cartoons to contextualise the concept so that someone who might not be familiar with goings on in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa can make some sense of what I draw.

Government trolls

What does one do when you have to draw a cartoon about yet another fuel increase? Well, this is an example of rather horrible wordplay but it seems to have elicited a number of laughs by all accounts.
