The leaders reinstated that they can support any another OKA leader but not Raila Odinga and warned that the kamba community will never forgive the Wiper Party leader if he choose to deputize the ODM Party leader. The leaders stated that Jamba nation is firmly behind OKA as they persuaded the principles to reject any plot that would decide them.
