Notably, pubic means something that is near sexual organs while public means something that concerns the people as a whole.

As expected, others took the opportunity to throw shade at local journalists referring to them as poorly trained and whatnot.
Here are the reactions by the undefeated people of the internet.

@citizentvkenya is the real definition of Githeri media. Full of unqualified journalists where most of them are Azimio minions. They act under strict instructions from the state.
