State House spokesperson Kanze Dena on Tuesday confirmed that a JKUAT student was shot and injured by GSU officers guarding State House when he tried to gain illegal entry.
Master Brian Kibet alias Bera was intercepted by security officers on Monday at 4 pm and was shot on shoulders when he resisted to surrender. He was booked at Kileleshwa Police Station before being taken to Kenyatta National Hospital for treatment.
"The incident occurred at 4.05pm and the suspect was booked at Kileleshwa Police Station before he was taken to Kenyatta National Hospital for treatment. Investigations are ongoing to establish the motive of the trespass and appropriate action will be taken upon conclusion," read part of the statement as quoted by the Standard.
On his Facebook account, Kibet preempted his Monday attack a day before, arguing that he had been sent by God to descend on President Uhuru Kenyatta and his 'partners'.
"To thief President Uhuru Kenyatta and his partners. Tomorrow (Monday) I attack State House. God has sent me to execute judgement on every thief and every partner of a thief," he wrote, arguing that he'd changed his name to Prince of Ethiopia.
In an earlier post, the student had warned President Uhuru Kenyatta to withdraw 'his teachers, soldiers, people and administrators' from his land, terming them foreigners. He also warned a section of Kenyan communities.
"Foreigners leave my land. Foreigners leave my inheritance. You have robbed me the last 24 to 25 years of my life. You have persecuted me from my childhood, from my mother's womb up to now.
"I tell you Lumeek, British, Luos, Kisiis, Kikuyus and other foreigners, leave my land. Tell President Uhuru Kenyatta and his master the Bankers this: Withdraw your people from my land, withdraw your soldiers, teachers, administrators from my land," he wrote in a message that is likely to cause him trouble.
He's a Mechanical Engineering student at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology and is in his fifth year. The First Family was reportedly briefed about the incident.
