The Nelson Mandela Foundation has issued a statement saying that though it respects the right to freedom of expression it finds the "painting distasteful". The cartoonist said he wanted to send a strong message about the impact of Zuma's conduct on South Africa.

The painting of Nelson Mandela and Jacob Zuma has received wide criticism and outrage. "The rapist is continuing to do what he is good at.He is constantly molesting the country", said Mabulu in comments reported by South African news site Times Live.

The ANC says the painting is trying to divide rather than to promote nation building. "More concerning is his callous abuse of our icon, the late founding president of democratic South Africa".

Mabulu has in the past drawn a number of pictures showing the president in sexually explicit positions.

It depicted Zuma in a pose similar to that of Russian revolutionary Vladimir Lenin, except unlike the Lenin painting by soviet poster artist Viktor Semyonovich Ivanov, Zuma's genitalia are exposed.

The party previously launched legal action in 2012 against an art gallery in Cape Town for displaying a painting of Zuma with his genitals on display, but later dropped the case after reaching a settlement.

There have always been allegations that the Gupta family have held sway over Zuma and benefited financially from their association with the South African president.

Artist Ayanda Mabulu said his painting is meant to show how scandal-plagued President Jacob Zuma has violated the hopeful legacy of Mandela, the anti-apartheid leader who became South Africa's first black president after the end of white minority rule in 1994.
