Mwingi West MP Charles Nguna vowed to relinquish his seat if it is proven that he is a dual citizenship holder.
Nguna, who is in the list of 10 MPs accused of being dual nationals, termed the allegations as baseless propaganda fueled by his political rivals.
Speaking on Saturday, Nguna indicated that his parents live in Greece and he frequently travels to the European nation, but that should not be misconstrued to mean that he is a Greek citizen.
"I’ve worked with international companies, and by virtue of that lived outside Kenya, but I never sought dual citizenship. The fact that I visit my parents in Greece quite often doesn’t mean I am a citizen. I want EACC to hasten their investigations into the matter," he said as quoted by Daily Nation.
Nguna spoke two days after the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) opened a probe against eight National Assembly members and two senators over claims of holding dual citizenship.
The names of MPs alleged to be dual nationals were forwarded to EACC for investigations by activist Okiya Omtatah.
Leaders accused of holding dual citizenship include National Majority Leader Aden Duale (Somalia), Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika, Kamukunji MP Yusuf Hassan (UK citizenship), Marsabit Woman Representative Safia Sheikh Adan (Somali and Ethiopian), and Mandera South MP Man Haji Ali (Somali).
Other are Daadab MP Mohammed Dahir Duale (Somali), Lagdera MP Mohammed Garane (Somali), Mwingi West MP Charles Ngusya Nguna (Greece), Naivasha MP Jane Kihara (US), Narok Senator Olekina Ledama (US) and former Kilome MP Philip Kaloki (US).
Duale, Senator Kihika, and former Kilome MP Kaloki have since come out to deny the allegations. Section 31(2) of the Leadership and Integrity Act bars dual citizenship holders from holding State positions.
“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, 2011,” the section states.
