The Legal And Diplomatic Evolution of Sudan-Zaire Boundary

Auther : Bukhari Abdalla Elgaali

Among the issue of international law and international relations within Africa, none has been of greater immediate interest to the African States in the last three decades than that of their international boundaries. It is commonplace that the contemporary political map of Africa represents for the most part the international boundaries, which were established by the colonial powers. A firsthand account of how the Colonial powers handled the paper partition of Africa represents for the most part the international boundaries, which were established by the Colonial Powers. A firsthand account of how the Colonial Powers handled the paper partition of Africa was given by Lord Salisbury after the conclusion of the Anglo-French Convention in 1890, which established the basis for the international boundaries between the present States of Niger, Dahomy, Nigeria and Chad: we have been engaged in drawing lines upon maps where no white man’s footever trod; we have been giving away mountains and rivers and lakes of each other, only hindered by small impediment that we never knew exactly where the mountains and rivers and lakes were. “Indeed geographical phrases or features were used extensively in the delimitation of the African boundaries, without exactly defining them. Accordingly many anomalies. Difficulties and disputes are imposing themselves. Within this context the object of this article is to examine the origins of the present boundary between Sudan and Zaire, to trace its diplomatic evolution, to consider its legal aspects and to state their present status.
