1. Clarification ....its not a bill...its an ACT of parliament. A bill is when the laws are in draft/reading /approval stage before the president appends his signature. Once he does so, its an ACT of parliament.
2. Why is Kenyan high commission demanding a Copy of UK passport when filling form 2 yet one can be a citizen of UK without the UK passport. What the commission should be asking is registration/naturalisation certificates as citizenship is legally obtained when one takes an oath and given the certificate. A passport is not a necessity just like in our Country Kenya where one is a citizen but does have a passport.
3. Make it clear in commission website when one fills Form 2 and Form 5 as this will help clear the matter. Form 2 is for anyone who acquired dual nationality after promulgation of new constitution (not the day the citizen act become effective) while form five is for anyone who had automatically lost nationality before promulgation of new constitution.
4. Add on High commsion website a list of all documents required. I was asked to produce two passport size photos for form 2. Form 2 doesn't indicated anywhere that and I had to postpone my bid to register my dual nationality.
4. About fines, we need a more clear picture on this, may people have acquired citizenship after the act of 2011 but the forms started being available just last month !!! Shall we have to be penalised for this? Why our government cant give us a grace period of three months from the day the forms became available?
4. I know funds are tough but can we more space at reception of Kenyan high commission...its bad seeing visitors lining outside (and you know our British weather). If not, can appointment system be put in place if extra space is hard to acquire?
Finally thanks to commission staff for your dedicated works ethic. If only most people in our government offices in Kenya could acquire your work ethics, Kenyans would be miles ahead in service delivery.
