Kenya Defence Force (KDF) was deployed to guard and keep the border safe after Ethiopian forces reportedly invaded the Kenyan Police.
KDF moved with armored vehicles and tanks from the Odha Military Camp in Moyale to Sololo following the invasion.
The Ethiopian forces were pursuing the rat-tag rebels from the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) who on Thursday gunned down a senior provincial administrator. The rebels are in Ethiopia and parts of Marsabit County.
Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) is opposed to Ethiopia’s ruling regime and claims the government has marginalized the majority of Oromia-speaking people who include the Borana, an ethnic also found in Kenya.
Ethiopia is considered regional ally and a friendly neighbour to Kenya but that notwithstanding Kenya needs to defend its sovereignty as Ethiopian forces have invaded Kenyan territory on three different occasion this year; at Moyale Illeret and now Sololo.
