Uhuru tells Nasa not to incite through negative rhetoric

President Uhuru Kenyatta has accused the opposition, Nasa, of inciting Kenyans through negative rhetoric.

This was in reference to remarks made by Nasa leaders Monday calling on the government to probe the killing of Mumias Sugar Company Legal affairs officer Ronald Lubya.

Mr Lubya was killed by unknown people on Sunday night at his home in Kholera Sub-Location, Matungu Sub-County at around 10pm.

Speaking at Masimba High School in Kisii, the president said leaders should desist from careless talks that could incite wananchi.

“Announcing in public rallies of one’s death will not solve anything. Let the aggrieved seek help from the relevant authorities,” he said.

He said leaders should be cautious in order to ensure there is no repeat of the 2007/2008 post-election chaos, saying the country should never shed blood again because of elections.

CHEQUE FOR IDPS

During his visit, the head of State issued a Sh358 million cheque to about 7,000 integrated IDPs from Kisii County.

President Kenyatta made stops at Keroka and Keumbu where he urged residents to support his re-election bid.

He was later to address rallies at Jogoo, Suneka and Tabaka.

Wednesday, he will go to Nyamira as he intensifies his vote hunting mission in Gusii region which has slightly over 500,000 votes.

The President was welcomed to the region by the local Jubilee brigade led by Kisii Senator Chris Obure, former CIC Chairman Charles Nyachae and a host of MPs from the region allied to the Jubilee Party.

Mr Obure is seeking the Kisii governorship seat while Mr Nyachae wants to be the Kisii senator.
