Gold, guns and instability: transnational organised crime in East Africa


East Africa is reeling from civil war in Sudan, a shaky peace deal in Ethiopia, al-Shabaab attacks in Somalia in response to a counter-offensive against the terror group, various humanitarian crises that have displaced millions, and public protests in Kenya against rises in the cost of living and taxes.

These developments undermine political leadership and governance and may embolden organised crime networks and corrupt government officials to expand their activities across the region.
