Kenya's Head of Civil Service and Secretary to the Cabinet, Francis Kimemia, has announced the dates for the Kenyan non-working public holidays associated with the upcoming Kenyan Presidential Inauguration.

According to the aforementioned statement, Kenya's fourth President will be sworn-in on March 26, if there is no run-off and the results are not challenged in court. If the election is won in one round and any petition challenging the results is dismissed, then the inauguration will be on April 16. If there is a run-off, but no legal challenges, then the inauguration will be on April 30. Finally, if there are both a run-off and legal challenges, then the inauguration will be on June 18.

Last year (2012-08-02), the Assumption of Office of The President Bill was tabled as a constitutional bill in Kenya's Parliament, confirming earlier announcements (2012-06-08) that an official non-working public holiday would be declared on the day the next President inauguration.

In the previous presidential election, a series of violence-related public holidays had been declared in Kenya (2008-01-03, 2007-12-30, and 2007-12-20).
