Abstract:South Africa is currently facing several political dilemmas that influence the entire social organization of the country. Thus, the historicity of the political processes that permeate South African society today, the power plays of the country's elites, as well as external influences that act internally through the political parties of South Africa, and the presence of important African nations within the scope of the BRICS, are essential elements for understanding the South African policy context. This article provides an analysis of the situation, not only pointing out the political agents which actively intervene in this game, but also constructing possible scenarios for the unfolding of the events.
