SOLVED! See what UHURU and MUSEVENI have agreed on the disputed Migingo Island after 3-hours of intense meeting in Mombasa yesterday?

Thursday March 28, 2019-President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Ugandan counterpart, Yoweri Museveni, have agreed to form a joint commission that would review controversial border points and the issue of the disputed Migingo Island.

“This commission will not just look at Migingo, but also address challenges on other points to conclude it (dispute) in the shortest time possible. We also agreed that we are going to jointly explore resources of the water together and ensure that fishing is done in a sustainable manner,” stated Uhuru.

During the 3-hour meeting held in Mombasa yesterday, Foreign Affairs CS, Monica Juma, and her Ugandan counterpart, Sam Kutesa, also briefed the two Presidents on their resolutions to bring calm on the controversial island.

“We aim for long-term solutions - especially on the issue of the border between Kenya and Uganda - so that communities living along the lake can coexist peacefully in harnessing and maximising utilisation of the regional resources,” Dr. Juma said.

Migingo Island has been at the center of controversy between the two countries since 2010 and at times, Kenya has complained of alleged harassment of fishermen by Ugandan forces, a claim Kampala has often denied.
