President Uhuru Kenyatta has been challenged to help Brian Bera, the JKUAT student who was shot for trespassing at State House
Citizen TV‘s Linus Kaikai citing Uhuru’s Madaraka day plea for support of people undergoing depression told Uhuru that Brian is his real opportunity to walk his own talk.
“Here is a case of a young Kenyan man in search of a safe harbor, Brian has reached out and the President should in the spirit of Madaraka day speech stretch out his hand, ” Kaikai said.
During President Kenyatta’s Madaraka Day speech, the head of State spoke about mental health and the need to check out on their loved ones.
“Depression has today become a common phenomenon and affects persons from all walks of life and ages,” Uhuru had noted.
He went on to urge employers and institutions of learning to invest more time and resources into monitoring and facilitating the mental well being of its stakeholders.
“To anyone who is struggling with depression or feelings of hopelessness, I beseech you to reach out, talk, you are not alone,” Uhuru spoke.
In addition, Kaikai urged the president to address the issues victims of depression have raised. Corruption, State-related looting, maize and sugar scandals, dam projects have been some of the news making headlines in the country.
“Brian spoke of stealing, is it a lie? What hope of a future can an A-student even have, does an A even make sense when corruption is almost the only path to power and prosperity?” Linus challenged.
Brian is currently recuperating at Kenyatta National Hospital and His father David Bera has pleaded that he should not be charged.
