This cartoon supplied by the artist depicts South Africa president Jacob Zuma, left, holding a clothes hanger from which the once robust former president nelson Mandela dangles limply, eyelids sagging. This cartoon by Dov Fedler , which appeared last month, makes light of a visit  Zuma, had with Mandela. After the encounter at Mandela’s home, Zuma cheerily said the 94-year-old was up and about, in good spirits and doing well. But the images carried by state TV showed Mandela sitting with a blanket covering his legs, silent and unmoving with his cheeks showing what appear to be marks from a recently removed oxygen mask. Mandela did not acknowledge Zuma, who sat right next to Mandela. The footage unsettled some viewers who considered the visit to be a stunt to make Zuma look good.  The ANC insisted it had no ulterior motive ahead of elections next year, and that it was only showing respect for a living national treasure. (AP Photo/Dov Fedler) SOUTH AFRICA OUT
