Districts[edit]

The article contains a list of "Districts after 2007". should there not be a note somewhere that these new districts have been ruled illegal by the High Court, and that legally, Northeastern Province has only the three districts contained in the first list?

Yes. It has been several years since the court's ruling, has Kenya straightened this out yet? --16:21, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Kaskazini Mashariki[edit]

Kaskazini Mashariki and Kaskazini Mashariki Province redirect here. Does anyone know why? It is not currently mentioned in the article. If it is an alternate name should it not be mentioned? --Bejnar (talk) 16:21, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Name in Swahili (official language of Kenya besides English): [1]. See also ISO 3166-2:KE. Chanheigeorge (talk) 17:11, 26 August 2012 (UTC)
The official name of the region is the North Eastern Province (c.f. [2]); previously, it was known as the Northern Frontier District. The NEP is principally inhabited by Somali speakers, and the native name for the region is Woqooyi Bari [3]. Middayexpress (talk) 12:18, 27 August 2012 (UTC)
