Drama as Uganda police storm Migingo Island, lower Kenya’s flag

By Caleb Kingwara | September 16th 2018
Tension was high on Saturday at the disputed Migingo after Ugandan security forces lowered a Kenyan flag at the island on Wednesday. 

Although Kenyan security organs downplayed the situation, residents and fishermen who have been perpetually harassed by Ugandan police said their businesses have been shut down.

“When the Kenyan police tried to raise the flag on Wednesday, it was pulled down by the Ugandan police who warned them against trying to raise it again,” said Ochieng.

He said they were being harassed by the Ugandan forces. 

“We do not understand why the government is silent on this issue,” he said.
