President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday spoke about the brutal killing of Mumias Sugar Company  Legal Affairs boss Ronald Lubya, a day after ODM party leader Raila Odinga linked Jubilee to the murder.

Speaking in Kisii during his political tour, Mr Kenyatta rubbished Odinga’s claims noting that they were mere propaganda.

The Head of State ordered the former Prime Minster to provide evidence to the police to proof his allegations.

President Kenyatta accused Odinga and the Opposition of inciting Kenyans highlighting that the claims were baseless.

"If you have information on the killing, give it to police. [How will making claims at a political rally help]? Let us not incite Kenyans or cause unnecessary tension," Mr Kenyatta was quoted by a local daily.

The President insisted that the Opposition ought to focus on issues during its campaigns.

"Our competitors are focusing on propaganda, divisive politics and abuses. I'm campaigning on the strength of my achievements and what I intend to do in the next five years,"  he stated.

On Monday, Odinga claimed that the Mr Lubya was shot dead after he refused to sign a deal for the illegal importation of sugar from Sudan through Uganda.

Speaking in Machakos town Odinga divulged: "It is only last year that they killed my friend Jacob Juma after he revealed a plan to assassinate me. Investigations have not been completed to date”."They have now shot and killed the Mumias Sugar secretary for objecting the signing for illegal importation of sugar from Sudan through Uganda. This is something we will not allow to continue," the former Prime Minister noted.

Mr Lubya was shot dead by unknown gunmen on Sunday night who raided his home and injured his wife during the attack.
