Kenyans Gang Up Against Local Media Station After It Said This About Raila's March 20th Declaration

Earlier today, Raila Odinga was in Siaya County, where he made a major announcement to his followers regarding the highly anticipated Nairobi protests scheduled for March 20th.

While addressing his followers, Raila Odinga headed to Martha Karua's request to declare March 20th as a public holiday so that his followers can attend the highly anticipated protest in Nairobi scheduled to take place on March 20th. The bold move by Raila Odinga was received with mixed reactions among a section of Kenyans, considering the impossibility for the opposition leader to declare any day as a national holiday in Kenya.

One popular media station reported the announcement made by Raila Odinga to their followers, but their reporting seems to have rubbed off the wrong way among a section of Kenyans. While writing about the announcement made by Raila Odinga, NTV Kenya through their online print media captioned the announcement made by Raila Odinga as "hot air" as they further proceeded to explain how it was constitutionally impossible for the Azimio Party leader to declare March 20th a national holiday.

The local media station found themselves receiving backlash from a section of Kenyans for the choice of words they chose to use on the headline, with some Kenyans calling them out for being biased. Another section of Kenyans had no qualms with the headline, as they went on to absolutely agree that the declaration made by Asimio, the party leader, was actually about hot hair.

To my readers, what are your thoughts about the local media station choosing to use the words "hot air" while reporting about Raila Odinga's declaration today?
