    Matiang’i announces Monday as a public holiday

    Published on

    Monday, October 10, will be a holiday, according to Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i.

    Utamaduni Day will be observed on that day, according to a statement released by Matiang’i on Friday, October 7.

    The Public Holidays Act (Cap 110), Sections 2 (1) and 4, and Part One served as the foundation for his statement.
    On November 6, 2017, the High Court published a ruling designating the day a holiday.

    Justice George Odunga stated in the decision that it was illegal to abolish Moi Day as a national public holiday, which opened the door for its renaming to Utamaduni Day.

    The purpose of the day is to recognize the great cultural variety of the nation. It was formerly observed in memory of the late President Daniel Moi.

    President William Ruto is scheduled to lead the country in commemorating the day.
