The President of Cape Verde, Jorge Carlos Fonseca, has declared a one-off non-working public holiday following today's qualification by Cape Verde's national football team for the CAN 2013 quarter finals.
Usually (2011-06-12 and 2009-11-04), the one-off non-working public holidays, declared by the government of Cape Verde, are related to the launch of the annual drive against dengue and paludism ("campanhas de limpeza e de desinfestação das residências para combater os mosquitos vectores da dengue e paludismo"), although this was not the case last year (2012-08-04).
