President Uhuru Kenyatta has lashed out at the opposition National Super Alliance (NASA), accusing them of inciting Kenyans through negative rhetoric.
The head of state made reference to remarks made by NASA leaders on Monday calling on the government to investigate the killing of Mumias Sugar Company legal affairs officer, Ronald Lubya.
The director was attacked and killed by unknown assailants on Sunday night at his home in Kholera Sub-Location, Matungu Sub-County.
Speaking at Masimba High School in Kisii on Tuesday, President Uhuru asked the opposition leaders to desist from careless talk that could incite Kenyans. "Announcing in public rallies of one’s death will not solve anything. Let the aggrieved seek help from the relevant authorities," he said.
He called on leaders to be cautious to avoid a repeat of the 2007/2008 post-election chaos, adding that the country should never shed blood again because of elections.
The head of State issued a Sh358 million cheque to about 7,000 integrated IDPs from Kisii County who were displaced from their homes during the 2007/08 post-election skirmishes.
He addressed rallies at Keroka and Keumbu Jogoo, Suneka and Tabaka and urged residents to support his re-election bid.
Kisii Senator Chris Obure, former CIC chairman Charles Nyachae and a host of MPs from the region allied to the Jubilee Party accompanied the president in his tour of the region.
