Ethiopian regime troops invaded Kenya today, for the second time this monthMore than 30 heavily armed Ethiopian government soldiers invaded Lataka village in Sololo, Kenya, on Tuesday morning and allegedly roughed up locals.

The soldiers also allegedly disarmed a Kenya Police Reservist (KPR) officer and arrested some residents of the village.

Locals claimed the Ethiopian soldiers demanded they produce and disclose whereabouts of Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) rebels, which is an outlawed militia in Ethiopia.

The incident happened two days after Ethiopia held its national elections and at a time when the Sololo border remained closed due to the polls. Speaking to The Standard, they said soldiers were armed with AK47 rifles, hand grenade and sophisticated weapons.

“They roughed up several people in the village and my elder brother suffered head and leg injuries during the 6am incident,” a resident, Halkano Huka, said.

Locals said the troops crossed into Kenya on Monday evening, through the Godi-loni border point, and invaded Lataka village on Tuesday morning which is some 20 kilometres from the border.

During the invasion they arrested two people from the village and released them after three hours. The residents said soldiers went towards Qicha village some 10 kilometres towards the border and by the time we went to press, the fate of the village remained unknown. The villagers said Kenyan police arrived at the village at 9am and went to Sololo Police Station where they interrogated the two abducted villagers, Gimbe Jarso and Rob Jarso.

Sololo Deputy County Commissioner Raphael Muiruri confirmed the incident and said a KPR officer was disarmed.
