Kenya has accused Tanzania of “dumping” Ethiopian nationals on its side of the border on Tuesday rather than deporting them to their home country, Kenya’s Standard newspaper reports.
The Ethiopians had been freed from prison after serving sentences for various crimes in Tanzania.
“Police and immigration officers have been directed not to allow the foreigners to enter the country. They will be taken back to Tanzania where they came from. The incident is unacceptable and not allowed in law,” Kenyan official Henry Wafula is quoted as saying.
