Kenya New Constitution - Dual citizenship - Parliament has to seal security loopholes

Caution: Foreign Affairs minister Moses Wetang’ula says foreigners will be carefully vetted before being granted dual citizenship.

The minister hailed the new Constitution for allowing dual citizenship, saying it was a boon for Kenyans living in the Diaspora.

However, he said, Parliament will have to pass legislations to seal security loopholes created by the dual citizenship clause.

“This clause is good news for Kenyans living in the Diaspora, but it cuts both ways; foreign criminals, for example, might want to seek Kenyan citizenship. We will be taking care of that in Parliament ,” the minister said.
