Dennis Basweti has Wednesday been exonerated by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) as the manhunt continues for suspects involved in criminal activities during the anti-Finance Bill 2024 protests.

According to the DCI, Basweti’s photo had been erroneously listed among the wanted persons, prompting him to heed the DCI’s call for listed individuals to visit the nearest DCI offices to assist in further investigations.

Earlier Wednesday, he surrendered himself at the Kenyenya DCI offices and recorded a statement.

He clarified that the circulated photos, purportedly showing him occupying parliament during the protest period, were taken on June 10, 2024, during a visit upon the invitation of his MP, Silvanus Osoro.

The DCI has confirmed Basweti’s account as true and has reached out to him with an apology.

They commended him for his cooperation and for believing in the DCI’s commitment to conducting investigations thoroughly and fairly.
