It was a win-lose situation for nominee for ambassadorial position Mwende Mwinzi on Thursday as the High Court ruled that she cannot be forced to renounce her American citizenship as it was acquired by birth


Justice James Makau, however, said the case she filed was premature because the process of her appointment had not been completed.

He further said an ambassador is not a state officer but a public officer, being an appointee of the president.
