Serghay, Isobel and I were in Cape Town this week where Serghay was doing some painting at our flat. The two of us went to the local Rondebosch hardware store to buy a can of paint. While there we joined a lively discussion at the till about the now infamous painting of President Zuma. Involved were the Muslim lady behind the counter, a young black student and a middle-aged white man, together with some interested spectators and myself. I thought it was an intelligent conversation as we put our points of view and, in a friendly kind of way, debated the merits of each in turn.
