Youngster in Court For Jumping Over Fence into State House

Determination has been known to lead people into doing strange things. Some stranger than others- a court would learn as a suspect was arraigned for having jumped over a perimeter fence into Nairobi's state house.

Mathew Maina was charged with having illegally accessed a restricted area.

He pleaded guilty to one count of trespassing State House saying that he wanted to see President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Miana who said he was a school dropout claimed that he wanted financial assistance from the president to record music, Radio Jambo reports.

The suspect could however not be charged as he claimed to be 16 years old.

The court magistrate ordered that Maina be taken to Kenyatta National Hospital for tests to assess his age.

Kenyan hip hop artist Rabbit- Kaka Sungura has come to the rescue of the aspiring artist.

Through a post on instagram, Rabbit has promised to sign Maina to his label and see to it that he records his music.
