    Obituary cartoon: Nkosi Johnson (1989-2001)

    Nkosi Johnson (born Xolani Nkosi on February 4, 1989 – June 1, 2001) was a South African child with HIV/AIDS, who made a powerful impact on public perceptions of the pandemic and its effects before his death at the age of 12.

    Zapiro's cartoon on Nkosi Johnson is based on the powerful photograph of Hector Pieterson taken by Sam Nzima. This photograph has become a symbol of resistance to the brutality of the apartheid government
