Swaziland's Indvuna Yembali Nonduduzo Zubuko has announced the date when the upcoming non-working public holiday for the Umhlanga (aka. Reed Dance) would observed.

Although this year's announcement is not as early as that of the past 3 years (2013-07-23, 2012-07-07, and 2011-06-16), it is still much earlier than in previous years when the Umhlanga, Reed Dance, public holiday was usually declared 2-3 weeks before the event (2010-08-12 and 2008-08-15), and on some occasions, only days beforehand (2009-08-29 and 2007-08-28).
