Rwanda Public Holidays Amendments 2015
 
(Posted on Monday, May 18, 2015)

The Cabinet of the Government of Rwanda has approved the "Presidential Order determining public holidays" which adds 3 annual non-working public holidays to the list of Rwandan annual non-working public holidays, effective as soon as the PO is gazetted.

The aforementioned decree does abrogate the "Arrete Presidentiel N°06/01 Du 16/02/2011 Déterminant Les Jours Fériés Officiels" (07-Mar-2011), which had regulated Rwandan non-working public holidays, ever since it abrogated and replaced the decree which had hitherto regulated Rwandan non-working public holidays, the "Arrêté Présidentiel n° 101/01 du 25/12/2003 déterminant les jours fériés" (29-Dec-2003), itself a replacement of the "Loi No. 51/2001 Du 30 Decembre 2001 Portant Code Du Travail, 2001" which, had in its time (31-Dec-2001), replaced the "Arrêté présidentiel no 07/01 du 6 mars 1996 déterminant les jours fériés" (07-Mar-1996).

Last week's Presidential Order thus adds 3 annual non-working public holidays to the list of Rwandan annual non-working public holidays ("the following public holidays were added to the usual public holidays: 2nd January, Umuganura Day and Eid al-Adha's Day").

Presumably, in analogy to the "Arreté Présidentiel N°06/01 Du 16/02/2011 Déterminant Les Jours Fériés Officiels", the date of the new annual Eid al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) non-working public holiday will be set by the Moslems' Association of Rwanda ("Itariki itangazwa buri mwaka na Rwanda Moslems' Association").
