Many years ago, Kenya and Somalia had Issues concerning boundaries. Somalian government was claiming that some part of Kenya belonged to them, especially North Eastern region. This prompted British leaders to call for a meeting with then, president Jomo Kenyatta who's son is currently serving as president.
