    Kenya has ruled out the possibility of going to war with Uganda over Migingo Island.

    President Kibaki said on Friday that war was not an option, arguing that the two countries enjoy cordial relations dating back many years.

    The President appealed for calm, saying that Kenya and Uganda depended on each other and that advocating war was not wise in dispute resolution.

    President Kibaki warned leaders against politicising the controversy, and said unchecked utterances about the row was not good for the East African Community.

    Both countries, he noted, had agreed on the way to unravel the dispute on the island's ownership.

    "There is a team in charge of the process," he said, and asked that the joint survey team be given time to table its findings.

    President Kibaki appealed to Kenyans to peacefully co-exist with people of neighbouring countries to boost trade.

    He was speaking at Sichei Friends Secondary School in Bungoma West District during the funeral service for Ms Esther Nekesa Wambwa, 85, the mother Vice-President Michael Wamalwa, now deceased

    Busara gani na mtu anakuletea matusi ya nguoni usoni mwako?
    Kwani unadhani Mwalimu alimuacha Idi Amin atambe na matamshi
    yake yasokua na mwelekeo? M-7 anajua Kibaki hana uwezo wowote
    wa kumkabidhi uso kwa uso ( sababu wanazijua wao wenyewe) na
    ndiposa anazidi kutamba.Kumbuka Migingo has been known to be
    Kenyan land until M-7 alipoanza kutuma majeshi yake kutawala
    maeneo.Kibaki said nothing all this time na jamaa akazidi kumea kucha.

    Any sovereign Nation with a standing military worth its salt, will always
    have all options on the table...and I mean ALL!

    Hivi ni kwa nini Kenya na jeshi lao wasiingie Somalia na kuikomboa hii nchi ya jirzani kama Tz ilivyomuondoa Amini Uganda au kama Tz ilivyomuondoa Kanal Bakar kule Commoro?

    Ethiopia tried..but Kenyans are silent..are they not ready to take risk?

    Nakubaliana na Ab-Titchaz. Mtukufu Rais ameona M7 ni ngoma nzito hamuwezi. Kama ni Kurespect EAC, Uganda nao si ni member, mbona wanasema Migingo ni ardhi yao wakati si kweli? Na wanaikalia kijeshi sasa!!!

    War or military intervention is the best option for Kenya here!!

    Mzalendohalisi,

    Somali kidogo ni pagumu na yataka moyo kuwa-engage hawa mabwana.
    Kisha they know vita na wasomali si rahisi and will be really dragged out
    with ramifications playing right in the heart of Nairobi.Unajua wasomali
    wamejaa kweli Nairobi...both legal and illegal.

    Titchaz,

    Badala ya kugombana over Migingo..why not go to Somalia??

    If Kenya had intervened ealiar..Somalia could have been stable now..and all the credit would go the Kenya!

    Sasa nini maana ya Kenya economic hub..in this region kama wanaogopa to take responsibilities as great nation?? Basi waruhusu Tz tuichukue Somalia kama Uganda 1979!

    Angalia US wapo Afganistan, Pakistan..hii ndo heshima ya kuwa economic and military muscle!

    Au Kenya ni waoga?? See even poor Ethiopia tried..why not Kenya?

    Are u serious bro?..plz tell me u gotta be kiding for what you have advocated above!

    NB; We nee to evaluate things based on COST-BENEFIT analysis, being too EMOTIONAL sometimes can't provide the most suitable solution, nonetheless we dont need to take things for granted, still naamin there are many 'way forward' to avail ourselves so as to ease the status quo apart from Military intervention, let history teach us..unles otherwise u guyz tell me u gotta 'behind the scene' meaning/motive of what u assert.

    Manda,

    usinielewe vibaya mkuu.All I'm saying is that, when you are facing
    an uncertain enemy like M-7, its better to let him know that despite
    preaching diplomacy, you also have other means at your availability
    that you can use if need be. M-7 will twist Kibaki's words around
    and go about stalling the whole process bearing in mind that Kibaki
    has ruled out the possibility of a war.Hii kuongea, tunaweza kuongea
    mpaka asubuhi na hamna lolote la maana litatokea if M-7 refuses to
    remove his police force from the island.Then what does Kenya do?

    Its not wise to go to a gunfight with a knife.

    Regards.
