DCI Releases Photos of Protesters Wanted for Crimes After Storming Parliament

by TopNews

On Tuesday, June 25, enraged protesters breached the Parliament following the approval of the Finance Bill 2024 by legislators. The demonstrators later moved to the Judiciary’s office and Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja’s offices at City Hall, where they set them ablaze.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) has now released photos of protesters who went viral after illegally accessing government premises.


Nancy Odindo, a seasoned journalist at TUKO.co.ke with over three years of experience covering politics, news, and feature stories across both digital and print media in Kenya, reports that the protesters stormed Parliament during the #OccupyParliament protests. The protesters, angered by the Finance Bill 2024, demanded its immediate withdrawal. In dramatic scenes, some individuals recorded themselves inside Parliament, addressing invisible lawmakers and vandalizing the premises. They then targeted the Judiciary’s offices, causing significant damage, and subsequently set fire to City Hall.

Why Are Police Targeting Anti-Bill Protesters?

The DCI has launched a comprehensive investigation into the destruction caused by the demonstrators. Authorities have identified several individuals from viral videos and urged them to present themselves at local police stations for questioning regarding their illegal activities during the nationwide protests against the Finance Bill.

“The individuals whose images appear below are wanted by the police for their unlawful activities during the anti-finance bill demonstrations. We therefore advise them to report to the nearest police station for further police action,” the DCI’s notice stated.

Police Pursue Youths Recorded Stealing During Protests

In a related development, the police have announced their intent to pursue individuals recorded stealing from businesses during the protests. The DCI has released footage of suspects breaking into cars and businesses, resulting in significant losses for owners. One clip shows the violent youths ambushing a man and robbing him of his property.
