Pope Francis apprised that illegal trading of diamonds and other precious resources give rise to criminal activities and sabotage the political stability. During a tour of the continent in Kenya on 26th November he says these actions are tearing the beautiful nation Africa into pieces. He enunciates to the assembly at the office of the United Nations in Nairobi that it’s the high time to raise our voice against illegal trafficking. He said that illicit trade of diamonds tears the Africa into pieces, he also explains that illegal trafficking that generally move up in situations of poverty will in turn contribute to greater impoverishment and exclusion.
