Activist Okiya Omtatah has written to the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) to investigate at least 10 legislators who he claims have allegiance to foreign countries as they hold dual nationalities.

In a letter dated October 1, Omtatah wrote to the anti-graft agency to investigate whether the National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale and nine other legislators.

He wants the nine MPs, two Senators and one former MP probed for holding dual citizenship.

Mr Omtatah consequently wants EACC to ascertain if the said MPs are in violation of the Constitution, which bars State officers from holding dual nationalities.
