Kenya's Head of the Public Service, and secretary to the Cabinet, Francis K. Muthaura, has announced that the upcoming Idd-Ul-Fitr (End of Ramadan) public holiday would be observed, in Kenya, on Monday, September 21, 2009.

The announcement was made in a Kenya Government Gazette Notice No 9625, dated from September 8th, but published earlier today.
