As to why two counties could claim a spot: which in the first place there exist a distinct border is baffling. It raised eyebrows to the International community as to exactly what was happening. Border disputes in no new thing amongst the African states. A committee that consisted of Ugandans and Kenyans was formed. They had a dialogue and in their recommendations, they suggested that a team of surveyors from both countries be formed to do the physical survey of the area. Indeed this would have been the ultimate solution. They formed a task force headed to the site of dispute hoping to bring back the joy there. A date was set and as expected, the survey started as planned. The Kenyan team was led by national surveyor Julius Rotich. But even after the committee getting the results from the survey team, it was so hard to believe that there was no agreement. So they ended up with vague results such as; the land belongs to Kenya but the surrounding waters are Uganda's. This came up as a fact that no country is willing to give up the island as it is so rich in fish. The case is currently under a new committee formed by the two countries to steer up the reconciliation. We can just hope for the best.
