The Government of Rwanda, through its Minister of Sports and Culture, Protais Mitali, has released a communique reminding the population of Rwanda that both Monday, July 1, 2013, and Thursday, July 4, 2013, will be non-working public holidays throughout Rwanda to commemorate Independence Day and Liberation Day respectively.

The aforementioned declaration of Monday, July 1, 2013, and Thursday, July 4, 2013, as non-working public holidays throughout Rwanda, is in line with last January's release (2013-01-07) of the full list of official non-working public holidays in Rwanda for the calendar year 2013 by the Rwandan government, as well as the "Arrêté Presidentiel N°06/01 Du 16/02/2011 Determinant Les Jours Feries Officiels" which, 2 years ago, overhauled the list of Rwandan non-working public holidays (2011-03-07), and which specifies that the date of the annual Eid el-Fitr (End of Ramadan) non-working public holiday will be set by the Moslems' Association of Rwanda ("Itariki itangazwa buri mwaka na Rwanda Moslems' Association").
