The Kenyan government has announced that it had declared Monday, June 2, 2014, as another day in lieu non-working public holiday in Kenya for the upcoming Madaraka Day annual public holiday of Kenya which falls on a Sunday in 2014.
The Madaraka Day public holiday, on June 1st, was one of the national holidays listed in the latest constitution's first drafts (21-Nov-2009), and was kept through the constitution's referendum (30-Jul-2010) and promulgation (12-Aug-2010).
Other Kenyan public holidays were not so lucky (07-Oct-2010).
Note that the declaration of day in lieu public holidays is semi-systematic in Kenya (21-Dec-2011 and 23-Dec-2010), despite the fact that sections 3 and 4 of the Public Holidays Act, states that public holidays shall remain on their set date, regardless of the day of the week.
