Kenya Cancels October 10-11 Public Holidays

Earlier today, Kenya's government spokesman, Alfred Mutua, has announced that, effective immediately, and as per the recently-promulgated new constitution, October 10, the day previously observed as Moi Day, is no longer a public holiday.

The removal of the October 10 (and consequently, the October 11, day in lieu, public holiday, in 2010) has been one of the salient elements of the new constitution, ever since the first drafts of the new constitution were circulated by Kenya's Committee of Experts on Constitutional Review, last year (21-Nov-2009).

The date of the referendum (30-Jul-2010) and promulgation (12-Aug-2010) of the new constitution were both declared one-off public holidays, as was the date of the census leading up to the referendum (23-Aug-2009).
