Speaking on Monday during a funeral ceremony at Ngelani, Machakos Member of parliament Victor Munyaka said the joke was in bad taste and the Kambas should not support Odinga or his party ever again.

"We are demanding an apology from Baba, and another thing he should forget about the support of the Kamba community, in fact,  now we are rooting for Jubilee's candidate in Kibra by-election McDonald Mariga to win," said Munyaka.

He said Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka is the Kamba leader and he should be respected together with the community he represents.

A similar request was made by Kitui Senator Enock Wambua who said Raila should bear in mind that Kalonzo shelved his presidential bid twice, in order to support him and excepts nothing but respect.

According to Wambua, the three Ukambani governors who accompanied Odinga to Kibra are not spokespeople of the community. 

"Charity Ngilu, Kivutha Kibwana, and Alfred Nutua don't speak on behalf of the Kamba community. They speak for themselves and their stomachs," he said.

"The disrespect Raila has shown Kalonzo Musyoka is shown to the whole community and it's time we sat and asked ourselves if we can build other alliances away from NASA," he said.
