Diplomatic row as Tanzania dumps 74 freed Ethiopian convicts off Kenyan border

21 April 2016, 12:49

Mombasa - A diplomatic row between Kenya and Tanzania may be brewing after Tanzania released 74 Ethiopians who had just finished their jail sentences in the country and dropped them at Taveta on the Kenyan border.

The ex-convicts were released on Tuesday but Tanzanian authorities who escorted them dropped them in Kenya instead of deporting them to their mother country.

Kenyan immigration officers at the border condemned the act and threatened to send them back to Tanzania.

They were allegedly directed not to allow them in Kenya.

The officers further said Kenya will not take over Tanzania’s burden under international law, Standard reports.

This comes a few days after Kenya deported 8 Taiwanese who had been acquitted of wire fraud charges to China where they were held for three days, resulting into an ugly row between the two countries.
