State House intruder Brian Bera not fit for trial, court urges mental treatment

Milimani Court has ordered Brian Kibet be remanded at Kilimani Police Station as his family makes plans for his treatment.

The Chief Magistrate Francis Andayi stated that the accused was found to be unfit to take a plea after Bera’s father’s account of his son’s mental condition.

 “If the police agrees to release him, then this court has no problem. This is a matter that requires family assistance more,” said the magistrate.

 “The brain was diagnosed with a psychotic disorder after three encounters where he walked long distances with no course,” explained his father, Kevin Bera.

Bera also made a plea to President Uhuru Kenyatta, begging to be forgiven for intruding State House.

“Niko na shida… Kukaa kwa police cell ninaumia…Sitawai rudia makosa hayo tena na ninaomba Rais Kenyatta na wakenya wanisamehe.

(I have a problem and I have suffered staying in police cells, I will never repeat those mistakes again. I plead with President Kenyatta and Kenyans to forgive me),” he appealed.

“ … If they take me to Mathare it will be a punishment…I request that you forgive me …I will be like people of the New Testament,” Brian pleaded.

The mechanical engineering student was shot over the shoulder after refusing to respond to instructions when he trespassed the heavily guarded State House.

He was later arrested and admitted at Kenyatta National Hospital for treatment.
