Kenya

It is the biggest economy in East and Central Africa. On Aug. 27 2010, the nation adopted a new constitution that allows dual citizenship under due process outlined in the Kenya Citizenship and Immigration Act of 2011. All individuals who had applied for citizenship of other countries before the new constitution lost their Kenyan citizenship but can regain it through a process outlined in the law.
