The Mail and Guardian newspaper says it stands by its publication last week of another controversial cartoon by Zapiro.
The cartoon, which was published last Friday, features Lady Free Speech being held in position by the ANC’s Gwede Mantashe while President Jacob Zuma unzips his pants.
A dishevelled Lady Justice lies on the floor telling her sister to fight.
The ANC says it is currently seeking legal advice and is considering laying charges against the paper.
Editor Nic Dawes says they will not apologise nor retract the cartoon.
