Almost two years after the publication, President Jacob Zuma is suing Avusa Media for R5 million for Zapiro's Lady Justice rape cartoon.

President Zuma started actions against Avusa, the cartoonist Jonathan Shapiro and former Sunday Times Editor-in-chief Mondli Makhanya in an order issued in the High Court in Johannesburg on Friday.

The cartoon, portraying Zuma preparing to rape ‘Lady Justice’ included the president loosening his pants while SA Communist Party general secretary Blade Nzimande, Afican National Congress secretary general Gwede Mantashe ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema, Congress of South African Trade Unions general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi, and look on, saying "Go for it boss."
