US citizenship or the job? Tough choice for Uhuru’s appointee

Ms Mwende Mwinzi, who has all but passed the parliamentary vetting for the position of Kenya’s High Commissioner to Seoul, South Korea, now faces a tough choice.

She can either renounce her US citizenship and take up the job or forget about the prestigious appointment.

Section 31 (1) of the Leadership and Integrity Act provides that a State officer who acquires dual citizenship shall lose the position.

Subsection two says that a person who holds dual citizenship shall, upon election or appointment to a State office, not take office before officially renouncing their other citizenship in accordance with the provisions of the Kenya Citizenship and Immigration Act.

VOTE

On Monday, the National Assembly Defence and Foreign Relations Committee, which vetted seven nominees last week, presented its report to the House recommending the appointment of the nominees but with a disclaimer on Ms Mwinzi’s approval.
