Botswana cartoonist kicked out of court for drawing
Botswana cartoonist Stephen Gaongalelwe was removed from a court proceeding and his drawings confescated after security officers noticed him drawing during the court session. He was there on assignment by a newspaper editor and told he couldn’t get the drawings back without a letter from the editor describing the purpose of the drawings.
According to the Botswana Gazette, the presiding judges were alerted to the incident and ordered security to return the drawings and allow Gaongalelwe to continue citing that the artist was not distracting nor doing anything illegal.
