The Kenyan government has announced that it had declared Monday, June 2, 2014, as another day in lieu non-working public holiday in Kenya for the upcoming Madaraka Day annual public holiday of Kenya which falls on a Sunday in 2014.
The Madaraka Day public holiday, on June 1st, was one of the national holidays listed in the latest constitution's first drafts (2009-11-21), and was kept through the constitution's referendum (2010-07-30) and promulgation (2010-08-12).
Other Kenyan public holidays were not so lucky (2010-10-07).
Note that the declaration of day in lieu public holidays is semi-systematic in Kenya (2011-12-21 and 2010-12-23), despite the fact that sections 3 and 4 of the Public Holidays Act, states that public holidays shall remain on their set date, regardless of the day of the week.
