He claimed citizenship through his father and said it “expired”. At any rate, would dual citizenship make him ineligible? I think it would. The Founders wanted those loyal to the US to serve.

Kenyan laws are irrelevant to the discussion. Only US law will apply to the determination of his citizenship for the purposes of the presidency.
The Cayman Islands could pass a law tomorrow saying that every human on the planet is a Cayman. That doesn't change our citizenship status.
