Somalia has suffered a major setback in efforts to make a Kenya a landlocked country. Somalia wanted its sea line extended in efforts to ensure Kenya remained landlocked by declaring all the sea waters Somalia territory.
The ICJ Court declined to extend the sea for Somalia declaring that the two countries should share the sea together. According to the ICJ Court, it would be improper to make Kenya landlocked and deny it access to the sea.
Somalia has been at the forefront in the ICJ Court trying as much as possible to deny Kenya the coast line. The president of Somalia has been at the forefront fighting hard to have the coast line and all waters to be declared a property of Somalia.
However it's clear the ruling is inconsequential to Kenya given they have refused to accept the ruling terming it foreign and having zero impact in the country. However it's a matter of wait and see of what will unfold moving into the future given Kenya has already rejected the ICJ ruling in it's entirety.
