“For the record; I only hold Kenyan Citizenship. But it’s ok to let the busybodies earn their daily bread. These streets are rough,” added the Senator who had been accused of holding both Kenyan and US citizenship.

Earlier this week, activist Okiya Omtatah had written to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) asking the commission to investigate Senator Kihika and other leaders claiming they held allegiance to foreign countries.

“The Constitution expressly prohibits Members of Parliament from possessing dual nationality if it was acquired through naturalisation,” read Omtatah’s letter in part.

Other leaders accused by Omkatah of holding dual citizenship include; Majority Leaders Aden Duale, Lagdera MP Mohammed Garane (Somali), Kamukunji MP Yusuf Hassan Abdi (UK citizenship), Marsabit Woman Representative Safia Sheikh Adan (Somali and Ethiopian), Mandera South MP Man Haji Ali (Somali), Narok Senator Olekina Ledama, Daadab MP Mohammed Dahir Duale (Somali), Mwingi West MP Charles Ngusya Nguna (Greece) and Naivasha MP Jane Kihara (US).
