Another Zapiro cartoon causes outrage

Cartoonist Jonathan Shapiro has done it again and now faces backlash from thousands of Christians.

Some say he's taken the sacred crucifixion of Jesus for political commentary, personal gain and glorification.

The cartoon released over Easter depicts a figure who resembles Jesus on the crucifix, clad in the colours of the South African flag.

Gwede Mantashe plays the role of Pontius Pilate, the Guptas are portrayed as Roman soldiers making sure he's dead and a shower-headed President Jacob Zuma helping to wash the guilt clean.
