JKUAT Student Gets Shot While Intruding State House to ‘Execute Judgement’

By Virginia Mwangi / June 11, 2019




A 25-year-old Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) student was shot by police officers manning the Nairobi State House for trespassing as he accessed the premise through the fence.

Brian Kibet Bera who is a fifth-year mechanical engineering student at JKUAT had earlier posted of his plans to carry out an attack on President Uhuru Kenyatta on what is thought to be his Facebook account.

Kibet brandished a knife at the State House Officers at Gate B, at around 4 pm, who in turn shot him on the shoulder to disarm him. Kibet is reported to have appeared unstable mentally, which led police officers to spare his life.

Kibet is in admission at the KNH general ward under police guard where he is nursing the bullet wound on the left shoulder.

“He drew out a knife which prompted officers to fire at him where he sustained a gunshot wound on the left shoulder plate,” the report reads.

Kibet, according to Kilimani police boss Michael Muchiri, was booked at the Kileleshwa Police Station before his admission at the KNH hospital.

Kibet had a JKUAT identity card identifying him as a student.

“Tomorrow I attack Statehouse. God has sent me to execute judgment,” Kibet’s Facebook post reads.

It is a criminal offense to try to access a protected area such as State House one is liable to trespassing charges and Kibet was lucky to have survived the incident as that was not the case for his predecessor.

March 25th, 2017 had a similar incidence occurring at State House but the man whose identity remained unknown was shot dead.

The 2017 intruder had accessed State House to the Parking area at around 5 PM by the time he was shot by General Service Unit (GSU) officers.

President Uhuru Kenyatta was attending a golf tournament in Muthaiga during the 2017 attack.
