Somalia recalls Ambassador from Kenya, expels Kenyan envoy to Somalia

Somalia has recalled its ambassador to Kenya, Mohamud Ahmed Nur Tarzan, accusing the country of political interference. Somalia has also asked the Kenyan ambassador to Somalia, Lucas Tumbo, to leave the country “for consultations”. 

“The government took this decision while preserving its national sovereignty after it appeared that Kenya was deliberately interfering in the affairs of Somalia, particularly Jubbaland,” Mohamed Ali Nur, permanent secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said in a statement.
