I just had the pleasure of reviewing the Citizenship and Nationality Rights Case Digest published by the Kenya Law Report & Namati. The case digest is an essential source and important resource in advocating for Citizenship Rights in Kenya.
Some of the important cases highlighted in the case digest include one where it was held that Citizenship by birth could not be taken away by a refusal to provide documents of identification. This serves to reinstate the long legal doctrine of He who alleges must prove. If the state accuses you of being a stateless or an illegal immigrant, the burden to prove that assertion is on the state. A mere refusal to provide the state with evidence of your citizenship cannot be used as a presumption of lack of citizenship.
I look forward to discussing further more cases highlighted in the case digest and perhaps we can consider developing it further to include commentaries and more cases in the area of law. see the link below for the document itself. http://www.kenyalaw.org/kenyalawblog/wp-content/uploads/2023/Citizenship_and_Nationality_Rights_Case_Digest.pdf
