Imperial Boundary Maki


Captain Kelly's personal account of the Sudan-Uganda Boundary Commission of 1913 provides fresh and important insights into the process of imperial boundary-making. The Commission set out with good intentions but their desire to avoid dividing tribes was complicated by inadequate information, shortages of food and water, and fundamental differences of personality and outlook between Kelly and the chief Uganda Commissioner, Tunfell.
