He also accused the Kenyan government of acting as a TPLF interference in Somalia.

"Somalia has always shown maturity, respect for neighbourliness and respect, noting that Kenya took action a year and 10 months ago to summon its ambassador, and the Somali ambassador repatriated to Somalia", "said Minister Dubbe.

The minister also accused the Kenyan government to harass the Somali people travelling in the regions and force them to further search and pass through Wajir.
