George Michael remains in hospital under observation for head injuries, five days after falling out of a car, his publicist said.
SABC radio and television presenter Vuyo Mbuli died of a pulmonary embolism, the broadcaster has reported.
In reaction to the latest political cartoon by Zapiro, ANC spokesperson Brian Sekoto
said on Sunday that the ANC is seeking legal advice and are considering laying
a claim of defamation against Zapiro and the Mail & Guardian who published
the cartoon on Friday.
In Zapiro's latest cartoon Zuma is shown unbuckling his belt, while ANC
secretary general Gwede Mantashe, a
woman, holds the torch of free speech.See the cartoon here.
Zapiro is seemingly commenting on the ANC's suggested Protection of
Information Bill and the state-appointed media tribunal to oversee complaints
The latest cartoon is in the same vein as Zapiro's Raping Justice which
appeared in the Sunday Times in 2008 for which both Zapiro and the
Sunday Times are being sued for altogether R5m in damages.
The ANC has said on Sunday that they are disgusted by Zapiro's abuse of
freedom of speech.
"We ask of him to stop drawing these sorts of cartoons that border on libel.
He should rather focus on practicing his profession within the limits of
ethical journalism," said Sekoto.
