Zimbabwe Public Holiday August 22
 
(Posted on Wednesday, August 21, 2013)

Source: Government of Zimbabwe (Harare)

Zimbabwe's President, Robert Mugabe, has declared Thursday, August 22, 2013, the date of President Robert Mugabe's re-inauguration, as another one-off non-working public holiday in Zimbabwe.

Last month (25-Jul-2013), Wednesday, July 31, 2013, the date for the recent Presidential election, was also declared as a one-off non-working public holiday in Zimbabwe, in terms of the Public Holidays and Prohibition of Business Act.

This had followed, the week before (22-Jul-2013), Zimbabwe's Co-Home Affairs Minister, Kembo Mohadi, announcement that the government of Zimbabwe was deliberating on the possibility of declaring Wednesday, July 31, 2013, the recently confirmed date for the upcoming Presidential election, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe's Constitutional Court had earlier unanimously confirmed Wednesday, July 31, 2013, as the date of the upcoming Presidential election, which as per the recently-amended Electoral Act, will be a non-working public holiday in Zimbabwe (08-Jul-2013).

Contrary to past occasions (14-Mar-2013), these last 2 announcements are no longer based on Section 2 (2) of the "Public Holidays and Prohibition of Business Act (Chapter10:21)", which gives Zimbabwe's President the power to declare special one-off public holidays, but rather on Section IX-39-2 of the Statutory Instrument 85/2013 (Zimbabwe Electoral Act consolidated as at 22 June 2013).
