As soon as listening to the name of the island, we start to imagine a place surrounded by a sea, in which there are hotels, restaurants and resort. Overall, a place that is a perfect holiday destination, but today we are going to tell you about an island, which is, in the middle of the ocean, but quite different from your thinking. The Smallest War of Africa

Located on the border of Uganda and Kenya, ‘Migingo Island’ is a special place near the ‘Victoria Lake’ of South Africa. Around half an acre, this island is not like the other islands. You will be surprised to know that greenery is just a name here. In this size, more than 500 people live in this island, half of any football ground.

Only 2,000 square meters spread in this island, you will find ruined houses and small huts instead of luxurious hotels, restaurants and resorts. There are five bars, a beauty salon, a pharmacy and many hotels in this small place covered with wood and iron cover. The most important thing is that there are many brothels on this small island, it is the most crowded island in the world.

In fact, many migratory families have been living on ‘Migingo Island’ for the last several decades. Male fishermen from this island earn money by fishing throughout the day and loot money on sex workers in the bar at night. Men fishermen keep their women away from the bar. Women here will often be seen working in Ladies Salon.

Because of this specialty of this island many people also come here to roam around. The only way to earn money for bar bars and brothels is outside people. For these reasons, the number of people coming here is increasing constantly.

Some of the old fishermen of ‘Migingo Island’ cultivate small, in which they grow many types of vegetables. Men and women of this island do not like to marry people from other African countries.

These islands have been the cause of tension between Uganda and Kenya for more than a decade. For this reason, people living here are unable to decide whether they are residents of Uganda or residents of Kenya. That is why it is also known as ‘The Smallest War of Africa’ .
