Media Statement: The Nelson Mandela Foundation reacts to Ayanda Mabulu’s painting

In reaction to the painting currently in the public domain by Mr Ayanda Mabulu, the Nelson Mandela Foundation notes the public outrage it has caused and appreciates that the public is offended by it.

The Foundation would like to express that it respects Mr Mabulu’s right to freedom of expression. 

We however find this painting distasteful.
