A young man identified as Brian Bera on Facebook has been shot as he tried to access State House, Nairobi.
According to reports, the man was armed with a knife.
Brian had posted on Facebook that he was going to attack the house on the hill.
In his post, he referred to President Uhuru Kenyatta as a ‘thief’, claiming God had sent him to carry out the attack.
‘His message read;
To: Thief President Uhuru Kenyatta and his partners
Tomorrow I attack State House.
God has sent me to execute judgment on every thief and every partner of a thief.
(From Prince Of Ethiopia, formerly called Brian Kibet Bera).’
In a post he shared on June 9, he wrote;
It is a spiritual war.
The devil has no power to kill me. He may only torture me.
I will not allow myself to be captured because I will be tortured with drugs.
Remember Samson was never killed by Philistines. Only torture.
I am dropping out of school. Schooling is torture and spiritually satanic. It drives me away from God.
Another post he shared on the same day read;
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.”
Brian goes ahead to quote a Bible verse Deuteronomy 20:8 – And the officers shall speak further to the people, and say, ‘What man is there that is fearful and fainthearted? Let him go back to his house, lest the heart of his fellows melt as his heart.’
