Following an appeal by Somali government at the ICJ, the court ruled in favour of Somalia,in a move which will see Kenya losing a large portion of territory in the Indian Ocean believed to have oil deposits beneath the seabed.
Ongeri said that the move by ICJ was ill advised and a threat to peace in the horn of Africa.
Speaking during the burial of Ebisiba Obonyo at Gesusu village, Ongeri said that there was well thought out reason by the former international leadership to have the Kenya boundary with Somalia at sea drawn horizontally rather than diagonally eastwards.
"As a former minister for Foreign affairs I categorically observe that its of utmost importance to let the boundary remain as originally done rather than alter it to favour our neighbours",Ongeri said.
He supported the move by President Uhuru Kenyatta to raise exception with the ICJ decision and asked him to stay put and and defend the boundaries of our country.
