Members of the press photograph the defaced portrait of President Jacob Zuma at the Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg. The painting, by artist Brett Murray, has since been moved to a secure location.

Johannesburg - A full bench of the Johannesburg High Court will hear an ANC application on Thursday to have a painting depicting President Jacob Zuma with his genitals exposed taken down.

Judge Kathree Setiloane has granted permission for e.tv and eSat to broadcast the court proceedings live.

The painting, titled “The Spear”, was part of Cape Town artist Brett Murray's exhibition “Hail to the Thief II” at the Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg.

The ANC wanted the gallery to remove the painting. It also wanted the City Press newspaper to remove a photograph of the painting from its website.

The application was postponed on Tuesday to allow all parties to file further papers to the court. - Sapa
