Somalia case at ICJ will fail; maritime territory belongs to Kenya: Kithure Kindiki

The Kenya-Somalia maritime territorial dispute has escalated into a diplomatic stalemate.

The result of the impasse was Nairobi sending back the Somali ambassador to Mogadishu and recalling its top envoy from Somalia "for consultation".

The tussle began in August 2014 when Somalia sued Kenya at the International Court of Justice at The Hague, Netherlands, for unlawful operations in her maritime territory.
The disputed water is a triangular patch created by projecting the Kenya-Somali border eastwards. It measures 100,000 square kilometres.

Senate Deputy Speaker Kithure Kindiki has weighed in on the matter and assures Kenyans of a positive outcome in the case filed by Somalia over the maritime border.
