CS Matiang’i has gazetted Monday a public holiday to mark Eid-ul-Adha

Interior cabinet secretary Fred Matiang’i has gazetted Monday 12th August as a public holiday to mark the Islamic festival of Eid ul Adha.

The day is meant to honor the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God’s command.

This is the second Islamic Holiday to be celebrated after Eid al Fitr.

‘’It is notified for the general information of the public that in exercise of the powers conferred by section 3 of the Public Holidays Act, the cabinet secretary of Interior and Coordination of National Government declares that Monday 12th August 2019 be a public Holiday to mark Eid ul Adha.’’ The gazette notice published on Thursday read.
