In a statement on Friday, October 8, Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary, Macharia Kamau announced that Kenya will not recognize next week's judgement in the ongoing maritime case with Somalia.

The PS accused the ICJ of assuming jurisdiction on the case when it had none and ignoring Kenya's 1965 reservation that excluded disputes such as the present one from the court's discretion.

According to Kenya, the judgement will be unfortunate in a region that is already under the torment of conflict and instability.

"The delivery if the judgement will be the culmination of a flawed judicial that kenya has had reservation with and withdrawn from, on account of its unsuitability to resolve the dispute at hand," stated Kamau.

The PS also stated that the Kenyan government will not recognize the judgement and abides by its findings.
