Matiang’i declares Monday a public holiday

  • Save

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has declared Monday next week a public holiday.

The CS said in a statement Friday that Kenyans will celebrate Utamaduni day during the holiday.

“It is hereby notified that Monday, October 10, 2022 will be public holiday,” the statement read.

The declaration is expected to be followed by a gazette notice in line with the law. Matiang’i said that Kenyans should honour the day by recognising Kenya’s rich cultural diversity in a manner that promotes unity, national cohesion and economic progress.

The day was previously known as Moi Day.

Moi Day was removed from the list of national holidays following the promulgation of the 2010 Constitution.
