East Africa's unresolved border disputes. TEA GRAPHIC | FILE
The deadline set by the African Union for all African countries to delineate and demarcate their borders by the end of 2017, but only 30 per cent of the entire 80,000km borders on the continent have been demarcated.
Most of the disputes arise out of the scramble for natural resources or personal differences between leaders of neighbouring countries.
