The International Court of Justice (ICJ) is expected to announce the outcome of the maritime dispute between Somalia and Kenya on Tuesday.

The maritime dispute between Somalia and Kenya began in 2014 when Somalia filed a lawsuit in court, and has been dragging on for seven years, with the Kenyan government saying a few days ago that it would not abide by any decision from the Court.

The International Court of Justice (ICJ) has announced that it will rule on the maritime case on Tuesday, with a delegation led by Deputy Prime Minister Mahdi Guuled currently stationed at the Hague.

The Attorney General, Suleiman Mohamed Mohamud, said he was very optimistic that Somalia would succeed.

“I am optimistic that we will be successful, God willing,” said Attorney General Suleiman Mohamed Mohamud.

Somali government officials, previous leaders who filed the case at sea, the Somali opposition and the Somali people worldwide are all united and glued to the ICJ ruling, and it is hoped that Somalia will receive a fair judgement on its case for it’s waters.
