NOW the worst case scenario which we all are expecting in this upcoming referendum if any will be outbreak of conflict again. President BASHIR of Sudan has stated he will not accept a devided Sudan .
Now we Kenyans have invested heavily in this and one wonders what will be our posture if war breaks out
we have already started the Lamu port and the rail link is in the works.
A recent high powered UN delegation to Sudan especially Juba led by Susan Rice who is by the way despite being the USA envoy to the UN , she sits on the Obama cabinet and is said and known to be very close to Obama himself.She was one his closest advisers during the campaign for the white house.
My concern here is that no efforts were made by the Kenyan government to connect with this woman as she was around the region .this is a failure by the hapless foreign affairs led by Mr Wetangula, Kenyan foreign affairs minister who never seems to be on the ball when it comes to Kenya's interests.
Museveni says he is ready back south Sudan if war breaks out.He is clearly posing a challenge to Kenya who with their two pronged policy of good neighbourliness will get them nowhere.
We need to state our stand and up now and to let the worlds of President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda to be aware that an independent South Sudan is like the extension of Kenya itself and we will use all means available to make sure that South Sudan is a success and is part of the wider community of functioning East Africans.
