Zuma announced the need for the social cohesion summit in May following the storm of controversy caused by Brett Murray's painting 'The Spear', which depicted Zuma with his genitals exposed. The social cohesion summit invited South Africans from across the country to discuss how “to heal divisions of our painful past and establish a society based on democratic values, social justice and fundamental human rights,” according to its final declaration. It was discussed in Kliptown, where the Freedom Charter was signed in 1955. Zapiro's cartoon shows Zuma's disrespect for Brett Murray's right to freedom of expression.
