Regardless of Mr Yamamoto’s best intentions and efforts to end the dispute, they will only come to fruition if the combative side enunciates the end of its aims. We should welcome any help from outside that we can get, and if it will end this stand-off then it could be invaluable. The international community has an important role to play to ensure that the Kenyan stand-off ends by not emboldening or incentivising the one who started the dispute and ensures its endurance. Once these conditions are met, then talks can start with oversight from members of the international community, but not before. It is as simple as that, and the international community should act accordingly.
