South Africa’s fuel supply is being illegally leaked via Maputo in Mozambique. This is one of the findings from the Transnational Alliance to Combat Illicit Trade (TRACIT) report.
The research findings on illicit trade in South Africa points to the theft of minerals, and fuel, while counterfeit goods and falsified medications are also making their way across the country’s borders.
Senior Policy Advisor at TRACIT, Esteban Giudici, has called on South African authorities to implement the laws in place that are meant to prevent the illicit trade in the country.
This failure has cost the South African economy about R 100 billion a year.
