The Deep Side of the Kenya, Somalia Maritime Border Dispute

A group of Kenyans want the high court to stop Attorney-General Kihara Kariuki, Foreign Affairs Cabinet Secretary Monica Juma and the Kenya International Boundaries Office from participating in the Somali maritime boundary case. They are arguing that the case could lead to the alteration of Kenya's territory without a referendum, as required by the constitution.

The area in the Kenya-Somalia maritime border dispute forms a triangle east of the Kenya coast.
