“As we mobilise our people, we must say be vigilant. You must see through anarchy and people who are out there in a programme of regime change. We are aware of the meetings taking place regularly at the American embassy,” Mantashe told thousands of ANC supporters at the Union Buildings in Pretoria. Read more:

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff bowed out defiantly on Thursday, suspended from office after the Senate voted to put her on trial for breaking budget laws in a historic decision brought on by a deep recession and a corruption scandal.

Her suspension came hours after the Senate voted 55-22 to put her on trial, a decision that ended more than 13 years of rule by the left-wing Workers Party.

However, the suspension of Roussef may be cause for concern for other members of the BRICS group.

Speaking broadly about the economic grouping African National Congress (ANC) General Secretary Gwede Mantashe has said BRICS countries are a vulnerable to the threat of regime change by western countries a notion that some commentators reject.

Mantashe suggested some of instability in member countries is caused by the West.

"The destabilisation of the BRICS countries is very very clear except India which is run by a right wing party, all the others are destabilised one way or the other and they came to this thing and they say regime change is increasingly widespread western practice of overthrowing legitimate foreign authorities by provoking internal instability…."¯

Western powers turn to the practice as a way of overthrowing political authorities.

ANC Secretary General, Gwede Mantashe, has once again warned against western powers' apparent attempts at destabilising former liberation movements in Southern Africa.

Mantashe who recently attended a meeting in Zimbabwe, says the movements have become powerful governments.

However, he says they have also become targets of regime change.

He says Western powers turn to the practice as a way of overthrowing political authorities considered inconvenient to Western interests.

Mantashe says the same strategies are being applied in South Africa, under the guise of strengthening democratic institutions.

He admits the governing ANC's weaknesses make it vulnerable to outside threats.

Mantashe is unable to pin-point when the party started noticing attempts at regime change but he says, it’s important for South Africa to let go of the notion that we're different to other countries, because the world sees us as the nation of Mandela.

And that we need to wake up to the possibility that there are forces pushing for regime change here.

Mantashe has been very outspoken about the third force infiltrating the country's democracy.

In February, he mentioned the United States had a programme that "planted" young people in order to effect such changes.

“As we mobilise our people, we must say be vigilant. You must see through anarchy and people who are out there in a programme of regime change. We are aware of the meetings taking place regularly at the American embassy,” Mantashe told thousands of ANC supporters at the Union Buildings in Pretoria.

“Those meetings in the American embassy are about nothing else other than mobilisation for regime change. We’re aware of a programme that takes young people to the United States for six weeks, bring them back and plant them everywhere in the campuses and everywhere," said Mantashe.
