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 (12-Jun-2011 and 04-Nov-2009), 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 (04-Aug-2012).
