South African ruling party official accuses US of plot

21 February 2016, 19:46

Johannesburg — South Africa's ruling party spokesman says the U.S. government must clarify the "irregular activities" of some its diplomats in the country.

African National Congress spokesman Keith Khoza said Sunday the party would communicate with Washington through diplomatic channels.

The African News Agency reported that the party's secretary general, Gwede Mantashe, said the U.S. Embassy hosted meetings to discuss regime change in South Africa, similar to the Arab Spring. Speaking at a march in Pretoria, Mantashe reportedly said young people were recruited as instigators.

U.S. Ambassador to South Africa Patrick Gaspard dismissed the allegations and tweeted that the young people in question were participating in the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders in the U.S. He added the embassy worked with South African programs on health, education and jobs.
