A couple of hours after Somalia reported it was cutting diplomatic binds with Kenya, the Somalia National Army (SNA) was sent to the border.
In Mandera County, occupants detailed seeing SNA troops taking positions along the border.
“We have woken up to seeing military officials along the outskirt. This is exceptionally stressing,” said occupant Ali Abdille.
SNA’s turn, including setting specialized vehicles at Border Point Three, constrained local people to begin leaving their homes if there should be an occurrence of peril.
A senior security official in Mandera, who looked for obscurity, affirmed the appearance of the Somali military officials.
“We have woken up to the sight of military officers along the border. This is very worrying,” said resident Ali Abdille.
Somali Minister for Information Osman Dubbe reported on public TV early Tuesday that his nation was cutting strategic binds with Kenya.
Dubbe said Kenya had “continually meddled” with Somalia’s inward issues and that Nairobi was abusing Somalia’s sway.
The declaration came as President Uhuru Kenyatta facilitated Somaliland President Muse Bihi in Nairobi.
Mandera financial specialist Issack Adan stated: “We are requesting that Nairobi guarantee any issue between the two nations is settled for harmony to win.”
“This circumstance will influence business cooperations among Mandera and Somalia since we get the majority of our products from that point,” he added.
Mandera depends intensely on Mogadishu for business supplies thinking about the significant distance to Nairobi.
