DCI: Kenyans lied to us on Azimio protesters' pictures

A screenshot of some of the images that had been released by the DCI alleging they featured Azimio la Umoja protestors.

The apology comes a day after the DCI published on their Twitter page pictures alleged to be those of Azimio protesters, who reportedly destroyed property during March 20 demos in Nairobi.

"The DCI wishes to unreservedly apologise to the public for the mix-up of images in yesterday's (March 24) communication, which was meant to appeal for information regarding the whereabouts of criminal suspects involved in Monday's illegal demonstrations.

This image was captured by Getty Images on November 28, 2017, during demonstrations in Nairobi's Umoja estate.

Some of the pictures the DCI published as those of Azimio demos suspects were taken in 2008, 2015 and 2022.

Other pictures were taken in Burundi, and not Kenya.
