Former MP Wavinya Ndeti has lambasted Raila Odinga over the ODM leader’s recent remark about the Kamba Community.

Over the weekend, the former Prime Minister hosted leaders from the Kamba community ahead of the Kibra by-election slated for Thursday, November 7. The meeting was attended by among others, Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua and his Kitui counterpart Charity Ngilu.

In his address, Raila Odinga thanked the Kamba community for their generosity in a remark that had strong sexual connotations.

Unajua Wakamba ni waaminifu na wao ni kama akina mama wakisema watakupatia watakupatia” said Raila amid laughter from his audience.

The comment drew mixed reactions on social media with a section of netizens taking offence. Among them was the former Kathiaini MP Wavinya Ndeti who expressed her disappointed via Twitter.

“Baba I’m very disappointed with your statement. Kambas are patient and loyal but we will not be taken for granted under any circumstance. We supported you for 10 years and you should respect my community, ” Wavinya tweeted.
