Activist Kemi Seba Faces Loss of French Nationality Due to Anti-Semitism Conviction


Stellio Capo Chichi, better known as Kemi Seba, risks losing his French nationality after being accused of engaging for several years “in various actions intended to stir up anti-French sentiment in West African countries”.

The 42-year-old revealed on the social network X, then deleted the post, that he is subject to legal action to revoke his French citizenship, SchengenVisaInfo reports.

The Franco-Beninese supremacist, convicted of anti-Semitism, has been involved in similar situations before as well.

I hear them whining, getting indignant. KemiSeba1 did not have the dignity to voluntarily renounce the nationality of the country he despises France. He should have experienced this as a liberation. It was time to take this burden off him. It was time to know how to say no, or for him, NIET.

Journalist Geneviève Goëtzinger wrote on X account

Seba, who was born in Strasbourg to Beninese parents who were naturalized French, in 2019 was expelled from Senegal after a protest against the West African regional CFA franc in Dakar that got him arrested.

In a letter sent by the Directorate General of Foreigners in France under the Ministry of Interior Affairs to Kemi Seba, he has been told that the Ministry is aware of his plans to join demonstrations and conferences in different countries where he spreads messages against France,  criticizing its presence in Africa as neocolonialism.

Your behaviour and your words reveal a constant and current resolutely anti-French posture, likely to seriously harm French interests and likely to characterize manifest disloyalty towards the country of which you are a national”

French Directorate General of Foreigners

The deputy director of access to French nationality, which motivated the procedures for the loss of French nationality under article 23-7 of the civil code, provides that the French person who behaves like the national of a foreign country, may if he has the nationality of this country, be declared to lost the status of French.

In October last year, Kemi Seba was welcomed by a few dozen people who were gathered at Niamey’s airport. Besides, he addressed rallies in support of Niger’s military authorities.

Other ways that French nationality can be lost include renunciation, acquisition of another nationality, involvement in crimes and fraudulent acquisition, among others.

Earlier this year, the government of France stripped two dual nationals of their French nationality after finding out that they were planning attacks.
