Addis Ababa, Ethiopia -

Minsitry of defence announced on Monday that it has expelled three senior officers from the air force and army, the latest upheaval in a military that has been beleaguered by defections in recent months.

Air force Major General Almeshet Degfe and army Brigadier Generals Kumera Assefa and Asamenew Tsgie were banned from the military last week, said Dawit Assefa, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Defense. He gave no further details.

“Banned means the three officers have been expelled or kicked out,” Assefa said.

In recent months, several senior officers have defected to arch-rival Eritrea or joined rebel groups like the Oromo Liberation Front, which has been fighting for greater autonomy in southern Ethiopia.
