JKUAT student who was shot and wounded while sneaking into State House cries out to UHURU for help.


Wednesday, July 03, 2019 - Brian Kibet Bera, the fifth year Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) student, who tried to sneak into State House armed with a knife, has been arraigned in court.

The Engineering student was shot and wounded and has spent the last three weeks at KNH.

While appearing in court, the 26-year old student pleaded with President Uhuru Kenyatta to forgive him and expressed remorse for his actions.

The father’s suspect also pleaded with the court to release his son on grounds of mental illness stating that his son is not a criminal.

“In February instead of coming home, he went to Mt. Kenya where he got arrested.”

“The third incident happened in June 2018 again, when he walked from Kitale at 4am on foot all the way to Athi River for four days.”

“We were able to get him and was admitted for two weeks where he was diagnosed with the disorder by a psychiatrist and from there he has improved a lot and as a family we were relieved,” the father said.

“My request is for the court to allow me as his father to take him to hospital…it might take a long time for him to recover but detaining him in police custody will not help his condition,” the father pleaded.

However, Milimani Magistrate, Francis Andayi, directed the police to continue detaining him at Kilimani Police Station until Thursday when his case will be mentioned.

The Prosecution had sought to have the fifth-year student taken to Mathare Mental Hospital for medical assessment before he is allowed to take a plea.
