Malawi's Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development has announced that, regardless of the results of the Moon-sighting committee tonight, the date of the upcoming Eid-el-Fitri (End of Ramadan) non-working public holiday in Malawi had been declared as Friday, August 9, 2013.
As per a statement issued by spokesman of Local Government Ministry, Maganizo Mazeze, "The Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development wishes to inform the general public that on advice from the Moslems Association of Malawi in conjunction with Majlis Ulama Council of Malawi and the Riyatul Hilal Committee, this year's Eid ul Fipri public holiday will be observed on Friday August 9, 2013".
