On 15 June, the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organised Crime described t a “Triangle of vulnerability” for illicit trafficking is emerging as a key geographic space along Africa’s eastern seaboard – the Swahili coast. At one apex of this triangle is Zanzibar, another apex is northern Mozambique, and the final apex of the triangle is out to sea: the Comoros islands. It says that the Comoros is not yet a major trafficking hub but are uniquely vulnerable as illicit trade continues to evolve along the wider Swahili coastal region. These 3 apexes are linked by illicit economies and trade routes which take little heed of modern political boundaries. It refers to not only drug trafficking, but also wildlife and timber trafficking – with human trafficking as well.
