South Africa’s  Mxolisi Nkosi who is the Deputy Director-General of Global Governance and Continental Agenda at the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) participated in the talks over transnational organised crime at sea. The conference was organised by the United Nations Security Council.

According to Nkosi, maritime crime has deeply affected the African continent’s stability, security, and developmental activities in terms of the coastal as well as inland countries. He highlighted the fact that the continents are getting severely affected because of the increase in the incidence of transnational organised crime including the supply of small arms, light weighted weapons, drugs, human trafficking, terrorism, and money laundering.

The South African official empahsised saying, “In order to arrest the challenges posed by this broad phenomenon, it is crucial that a robust, regulatory framework and a coordinated and comprehensive approach be developed at national, regional and international levels to address this scourge.”

The South African coastal security guards have captured multiple vessels and also captured many people involved in illegal fishing and poaching in the water. These illegal activities have affected a million dollars of revenue and bread-butter of coastal communities. The governments of Mozambique, Tanzania, and South Africa have joined the trilateral agreement along with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime to prevent drug trafficking on sea routes connecting the Indian Ocean. This agreement is expected to boost sea surveillance leading to better security at ports along the Indian Ocean

The South African coastline is spread over 2, 800 kilometers that’s the reason why South Africa has called maritime security as an integral part of its ocean economy strategy.
