Msomi joined wrong dots to draw comparison: iLIVE
S'Thembiso Msomi's columns are often interesting and offer an intelligent view of daily matters. This week he missed the boat ("Zuma has become the 21st-century Saartjie Baartman", yesterday).
Does he think the artist had anything like Baartman or the "natives" or the "Tauza dance" in mind when he painted the picture? Obviously not. However, Msomi and many others have joined the wrong dots to arrive at this conclusion. I would have thought the title of the exhibition, Hail to the Thief II, might have given him a clue.
The exhibition is an artist's impression of the state of the government of today.
