Jacob Zuma controversial painting vandalized in Johannesburg art gallery

A controversial painting showing South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma has been vandalized in a Johannesburg art gallery.

It appears a man poured black paint over the art work displayed at Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg.

It comes as the governing ANC was asking the High Court to force the Goodman Gallery to remove the painting.

The $14,000 1.85m-high Soviet-style, red black and yellow acrylic painting had already been sold.
