    Utamaduni or Huduma Day, First Lady Rachel wishes the nation a Happy Huduma Day.

    Published on

    There is some uncertainty among Kenyans in 2022 over whether October 10 would be celebrated as Utamaduni Day or Huduma Day when it was proclaimed a National holiday.

    Further confusion was caused when First Lady Rachel Ruto posted on her social media accounts wishing Kenyans a happy Huduma day. This was in contrast to what Speaker Moses Wetang’ula wrote on his social media accounts, in which he wished Kenyans a happy Utamaduni day.

    Fred Matiang’i, Kenya’s Cabinet Secretary for the Interior, officially designated October 10th as Utamaduni Day and encouraged his countrymen to celebrate the country’s rich cultural variety in his official announcement.

    However, there was no indication in the communication that any national events had been planned to commemorate the day, as is customary for other national holidays in the country.

    To celebrate the various unique cultural customs that make up the stability of a country, this particular day was established. The holiday has historically been commemorated in honor of the late Kenyan president Daniel Arap Moi. Up to the year 2020, this event was known as Moi Day. After which it was renamed Huduma Day at first, and later Utamaduni Day in December 2020.
