  • A man caught at State House was on Wednesday arraigned in court where he pleaded guilty to trespassing the president's residence.

    William Ngene told the court he wanted to see the presidential residence 'live' and that was why he went in illegally.

    “I wanted to see State House with my own eyes because I only get to see it on newspapers and television which made me curious,” Ngene told the court.

    The 29-year-old entered the President's home on March 6 without permission and was arrested by security personnel.

    Ngene jumped two fences and started loitering the presidential residence before he was apprehended.

    He said he was disappointed as the security officers nabbed him before he was able to have a good look at the State House.

    The court directed the suspect to remain in custody until March 18 when the case will be mentioned.

    Ngene's case follows a series of incidents among which several people were caught in separate occassions invading State House.

    Last year, Kadhik Juma Walter sneaked into State House at night claiming that he was Kenyatta's friend, after he apparently met the President during a campaign rally in Western.

    Juma told the court  he did not have enough fare to go back to Western and opted to visit the President's residence since they were friends.
