Garissa Governor Ali Korane has called on the national government to act immediately and resolve the decade long border dispute pitting Garissa and Isiolo counties.
Speaking during a consultative meeting to develop peacebuilding and social cohesion policy on Wednesday in Garissa, the county boss said the boundary between the two counties has been a source of perennial conflicts, further adding that the issue should be addressed as soon as possible.
"The boundary between the two counties, Isiolo and Garissa, is lucid. The colonial maps do exist and I do not see a reason why it should take so much time to resolve," Korane stated.
On the frequent inter-clan disputes, Korane called on politicians from respective communities to desist from inciting their people.
"No one will ever last in leadership but history will judge us. Let us embrace unity for the benefit of the common citizen that we represent as elected leaders," the governor added.
The volatile Garissa-Isiolo border has been associated with occasional conflicts over grazing land and water points, a thing that happens almost every year during the drought.
With the policy framework that is being worked out by the two counties, it is hoped that the cross-border conflict will be a thing of the past.
