General comment

RE: Ommission of reflexive pronouns
Ket verbs regularly omit the object NP verb externally and also omit the verb-external reflexive pronoun, but the verb-internal marker that indexes this valent is never dropped for discourse reasons.

RE: Object omission (NP ommission)
Ket regularly drops its verb-external object NP to background it in discourse. However, the verb-internal object marker remains regardless of discourse function.
