Controversial satirist and cartoonist Jonathan Shapiro (popularly known as Zapiro) is famous for his seemingly endless illustrative works capturing the state of affairs in South Africa.
After the release of his latest visual offering, titled Rhodes Rage, he spoke to presenter Redi Tlhabi about his collection of work, most popular satirical devices and the importance of social commentary.
I'm here to be contentious. People don't have to necessarily agree with everything I say or create.— Zapiro, satirist and cartoonist
Listen to the full conversation from The Redi Tlhabi Show:
Rhodes Rage includes cartoons and commentaries on the uproar over the Cecil John Rhodes’ statue and the #RhodesMustFall campaign, NkandlaGate, Pay Back the Money, spy cables, NPA drama, Eskom, the xenophobic attacks and many other events.
