What you need to know:

  • Mr Namwamba is the first senior government official to make an official visit to Somalia in nearly six months

  • The tension between Nairobi and Mogadishu had been sparked off by a maritime boundary row.

  • Somalia has sued Kenya at the International Court of Justice, seeking to have the borderline redrawn
