Zim and SA face challenge of regime change by foreign powers

Southern African countries face a "very real challenge" of a regime change encouraged by foreign powers, South Africa's Defence Minister, Mosiuoa Lekota said on Thursday.

Addressing the ministerial session of the SA Zimbabwe Joint Permanent Commission on defence and security in South Africa, he said countries in the region faced “external threats” for regime change, according to a report in News24.

“We need to share information and intelligence on activities in this area. Working together our reach stretches much further,” Lekota said.

His Zimbabwean counterpart, Sydney Sekeramayi, used the opportunity to thank President Thabo Mbeki for facilitating talks between Zimbabwe’s ruling party and the opposition, MDC, which he said were progressing well.

Sekeramayi, in characteristic Zanu-PF fashion, criticised Zimbabwe’s former colonial power, Britain, for the woes that the country now faces.

“It would not come as a surprise if Britain, the chief architect of regime change in Zimbabwe, makes a last ditch attempt at derailing the talks,” he said.
