Abstract : There are numerous criminal activities identified within the eleven States that make up the south region. Independently these crimes would normally be considered a matter for local authorities and not relevant to the construct of strategic development. However, this report s theory suggests that the criminal activities occurring between southern African states have strategic implications on AFRICOM s ability to accomplish its security initiatives. Therefore, this report will proceed in three stages. First, what are the nexuses and the cause for the explosion in transnational crimes in the region? Second, what effects does this nexus have on the Southern Region directly and inevitably on AFRICOM s mission? Finally, what actions should be taken by AFRICOM to help deter this nexus and dissuade future criminal activities?
