South Africa on the eve of a coup d'état

On February 11th 2016, in Cape Town, South African President Jacob Zuma will deliver his annual State of the Nation address. The performance will take place against the backdrop of mass protests inspired by the West and attempts to organize a color revolution to oust Zuma.

Protest Actions

On February 11th, South Africa will be the scene of mass protests in Pretoria and Cape Town. The main demand is the resignation of the president. Pro-Western forces are using the deteriorating economic situation due to the decrease in demand for South African products from China, a result of negative trends in the global economy as a whole. Also students and trade union movements are very active in these rallies.

The pretext for the protests

The pro-Western liberal opposition is trying to use corruption charges to replace the president. The main complaint is spending more than $20 million from the state budget to repair his own villa.  Zuma’s party  - the African National Congress - can betray him and support the coup. "Economic Freedom Fighters", the second largest opposition faction in parliament of the country, appealed to the Constitutional Court with a demand to start the procedure of impeachment.

The true causes of the anti-presidential campaign

Zuma follows a policy that is independent from the West; he's trying to turn South Africa into one of the centers of the developing multi-polar world order. South Africa cooperates very heavily with other BRICS member-states, especially with China and Russia. In the case of color revolutions, attempts against other leaders of BRICS countries, such as the events of 2011 in Russia and of 2014 in Brazil, the pro-Western opposition use accusations of authoritarianism and corruption. In particular there are some similarities with the protests in Brazil, as both Brazil and South Africa faced mainly protests from the trade unions and the students.

Washington's Hand

Large-scale protests were organized in all cities of the country since the last summer. South Africa's leading trade union, the National Union of Metalworkers, took an active part in the demonstrations, previously calling for a change in the country's government. The Democracy Works Project, funded by the American NED Foundation, was involved in it. This and other protest movements in South Africa, which are intelligence programs, were the work of the left-liberal SWOP Institute (the Society, Work and Development Institute, originally the Sociology of Work Project) at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, working closely with Gene Sharp's American Institute of Albert Einstein, the main developer of color revolution technologies.

Coup in the ANC

The most likely method to remove Zuma from power is a coup from within the ruling party, the African National Congress, with mass protests in the country. Similarly, in 2008, Zuma's predecessor, President Thabo Mbeki, resigned after the ANC refused to support him.

The most likely candidate for the sixth presidency of South Africa is the pro-Western vice president of South Africa and ANC vice-chairman Kgalema Motlanthe. During the demonstrations against Jacob Zuma in 2015, he visited the US, where among other meetings, he went to the Bush-connected World Affairs Council in Houston, leading multinational corporations in Europe, the US and the Middle East, to discuss the globalist plans for South Africa.


Today’s Zuma appeal to the nation may be his last. His influence within the party has fallen, since the president cannot adequately respond to allegations of corruption, which his opponents use. In addition, the anti-Zuma forces will use the existing problems in the economic sphere and the negative impact of migration from other African states. The most likely scenario is the recalling of Zuma by the ANC.
