Zambia To Add New Annual Public Holiday

At yesterday's National Day of Prayer, the President of Zambia, Edgar Lungu, announced that, henceforth, October 18 would be gazetted as an annual non-working public holiday to be observed in Zambia as the National Day of Prayer Zambian public holiday.

Although the government of Zambia often declares one-off public holidays for elections (13-Jan-2015, 15-Sep-2011 and 26-Aug-2008) and former presidents' funerals (01-Nov-2014, 24-Jun-2011, 14-Dec-2008, 04-Nov-2008, and 26-Aug-2008), the last time a new annual non-working public holiday was declared in Zambia was in 2008, when the Zambian cabinet decided to add International Women's Day to the annual list of Zambian official public holidays (07-Mar-2007).
