THE QUESTION POSED BY THE TITLE of this year's collection of Zapiro cartoons is informed by the ANC's court action against artist Brett Murray and President Zuma's R5 million court case against the cartoonist, which became due for trial on 25 October.

THE ANSWER, provided by the following cartoon, unfortunately came too late for inclusion in this publication.

But that doesn't make this collection any less thrilling, as Zapiro once again rides roughshod over all the usual suspects in a year which would see him earn the prestigious International Publishers Association (IPA) Freedom to Publish Prize, and the Standard Bank Sikuvile Journalism Awards' 'Editorial Cartoonist of the Year' title. Another great collection, and coming in at less than a buck for each of the 155 cartoons; great value.
