The Minister of Civil Service, Labor, Social Security, and the Professional Integration of Youngsters, of the Central African Republic, Gaston Mackouzangba, has announced that, henceforth, the date of the annual Aïd el Adha (Feast of Sacrifice, aka. Tabaski) feast would be observed as a nationwide non-working public holiday in the Central African Republic.

Today's declaration means that the preceding declaration of Monday, September 12, 2016, as a nationwide non-working public holiday in the Central African Republic for the Aïd el Adha (Feast of Sacrifice, aka. Tabaski) feast, is here to stay ("Dans un pays quasiment scindé en deux communautés, le gouvernement a souhaité marquer un pas de plus vers la réconciliation.").

Recall that last year's (2015-09-23) declaration of Thursday, September 24, 2015, as a nationwide unpaid non-working public holiday in the Central African Republic ("La fête de la tabaski qui sera célébrée demain jeudi en Centrafrique est déclarée chômée et non payée") for the Aïd el Adha (Feast of Sacrifice, aka. Tabaski) feast, and the preceding summer's declaration of Friday, July 17, 2015, the date of the last Aïd el Fitr (End of Ramadan) feast as a nationwide non-working public holiday in the Central African Republic (2015-07-16), had already paved the way for an extension of the annual list of public holidays in the Central African Republic to include more Muslim public holidays.
