The 'Spear' had become a weapon of mass distraction for the government. Key issues are being ignored in favour of a single painting. The violation of the dignity of one is in the spotlight while around the corner, the dignity of millions of other South Africans are being ignored. I wish the same kind of enthusiasm can be shown for the bigger issues.
