Zimbabwe's Home Affairs Co-Ministers, Kembo Mohadi and Theresa Makone, have issued the annual announcement of the dates for the 2014 non-working public holidays in Zimbabwe in terms of the Zimbabwe Public Holidays and Prohibition of Business Act (Chapter 10:21).

The aforementioned announcement (Public holidays 2014 GN 348/2013), as usual (2012-08-01), does not include any special public holidays that the President has the power to declare under Section 2 (2) of the "Public Holidays and Prohibition of Business Act".

For the 5th year in a row (2012-08-01, 2011-08-30, 2010-10-01 and 2009-06-29) Easter Sunday is listed as an official public holiday (in addition to Good Friday, Easter Saturday and Easter Monday).

No mention is made of any day in lieu that may be declared due to the fact that, in 2014, the Independence Day public holiday will be on the same date as the Good Friday public holiday, Friday, April 18, 2014.
