Moroni

Moroni, coastal town, capital, and largest settlement of Comoros, southwestern Grande Comore (also called Njazidja) island in the Indian Ocean. It was founded by Arabic-speaking settlers, possibly as early as the 10th century AD. Dzaoudzi, the principal city of the island of Mayotte, was the original administrative capital of Comoros, but Moroni succeeded it in 1958. The port of Moroni consists of a small quay in a natural cove and lacks natural protection for shipping. Vanilla, cacao, and coffee are exported from the port, whose facilities include warehouse storage for imports and exports and for petroleum products.

Mutsamudu

Mutsamudu is the second largest city in the Comoros. It is also the capital and largest city on the island of Anjouan as well the former home of former Comorian president Ahmed Abdallah Mohamed Sambi. It now houses a deep water port, an ancient citadel, and narrow streets with many shops and small crafts. Mutsamudu is the only deep water port of the Union of Comoros, constructed in 1982. Three quarters of its cargo consists of transhipment for containerized cargoes destined to the two other islands.
