Abstract:

The objective of this essay is to review and analyze the relations of the East African nation of Kenya with its bordering states. The issue of whether the external and internal forces which influence Kenya and its bordering states force an osmosis effect which will make it necessary for these nations to adopt domestic and foreign policies on a left-right political spectrum which are similar to one another is raised. The analysis of the relations of Kenyas bordering nations covers the major points of harmony or discord between them. Both the forces of political and economic division as well as the forces which tend to push these nations into regional solidarity are considered. It is the view of the author that the rewards of regional cooperation are such that a measure of solidarity among the subject nations will prevail and that radical forces on the East Coast will endeavor, probably with limited success, to pull the interior nations leftward.
