South Africa Mandela Day Holiday Update
 
(Posted on Tuesday, June 30, 2009)

Source: The Independent Online (Pretoria)

From recent media reports, it would appear that the recently announced, July 18, Nelson Mandela Day, will not be an official public holiday.

When the announcement of a new Nelson Mandela Day annual holiday on July 18 was made, earlier this month (04-Jun-2009), it was not clear if the holiday would be a non-working public holiday or not.

However, it is possible that the government may choose not to decide anything yet, as July 18 is a Saturday in 2009, and therefore the issue will not come to the fore until 2010, when July 18 is a Sunday, which would mean, as per the 1994 Public Holidays Act, that Monday, July 19, 2010, would be a day in lieu public holiday.
