The devil will hear tomorrow whether he really exists.
That is when the general synod of the Dutch Reformed Church will decide whether its members are free to regard him as a metaphor for evil or must believe in him as a real person. Naturally the devil himself is on tenterhooks as to the outcome.
The latest controversial painting of Jacob Zuma at least shows the president with his pants on, which is a relief and a nice change.
Last year Ayanda Mabula depicted Zuma stomping his right foot in full warrior regalia, with everything personal hanging out of his leopard-skin loincloth. It was titled Umshini Wam – Weapon of Mass Destruction.
