The idea that ones citizenship is not a right but a privilege is like outright persecution especially if you are born in the country. In Kenya acquiring citizen is based in the constitution chapter three and article 14 deals with being born of Kenyan parents.
Citizenship by birth.
(1) A person is a citizen by birth if on the day of the person’s birth, whether or not the person is born in Kenya, either the mother or father of the person is a citizen.
(2) Clause (1) applies equally to a person born before the effective date, whether or not the person was born in Kenya, if either the mother or father of the person is or was a citizen.
