Government to protect freedom of expression
01 June 2012
President Jacob Zuma says government will continue to defend freedom of expression and people’s rights to hold marches for whatever reason.
He says government is committed to defending anyone who expresses themselves in any manner, except when their expression violates the rights of others.
Zuma was replying to the Presidency’s budget vote debate in Parliament in Cape Town on Thursday.
He also warned against shipping off the controversial portrait that depicts his private parts to Germany.
