This incident comes weeks after a fifth year Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) Student, Brian Bera, tried to enter the State House in an attempt to harm President Uhuru.
Authorities said Brian defied an order to stop after he was caught trespassing into the State House grounds and instead drew a knife on a security guard.
He was however shot on his arm and later taken to custody.
