Swaziland's Home Affairs Minister, Princess Tsandzile, has announced that, once again, the annual non-working public holiday in Swaziland to mark King Mswati III's birthday would be observed on Monday, April 20, 2015, due to its set date falling on a Sunday, in 2015.

The usual date for the King's Birthday annual public holiday is April 19, in the past this public holiday has often been moved around, for a variety or reasons (2014-04-15 and 2012-04-14), though not always (2013-04-17).

Such last-minute announcements of non-working public holidays dates is common in Swaziland, although these last-minute announcements of public holidays dates are usually tied-in to the traditional/religious public holidays of Umhlanga and Incwala (2015-01-06, 2014-08-06, 2013-12-02, 2013-07-23, 2012-07-07, 2011-12-09, 2011-06-16, 2010-12-21, 2010-08-12,...).
