Migingo Island, the small one-acre rock on Lake Victoria that has for decades belonged to Kenya has been under siege for several months now. It is telling that Kenya's erstwhile neighbour, Uganda chose to militarise the issue, yet the display was purely meant to aggravate long-festering 'war' over control of resources on Africa's largest fresh-water lake.
Please, look forward to the Exclusive story about how real and perceived jealousy made the neighbour to rear its ugly head. I would honestly call for sober debate over this matter since Uganda's aggressive behaviour and Kenya's equally meek-lamb response to the fisheries crisis could spawn a much deadlier battle whose implications could be fatal to East African Community' s goals, regional integration and development.
I am looking forward to your responses in the next few days.
