In a gazette notice dated Friday, July 1, the Kenyan Government's Interior Cabinet Secretary, Joseph Nkaissery, has signed a gazette notice announcing that, pursuant to section 3 of the Public Holidays Act of Kenya, the date of the annual non-working public holiday for the upcoming Idd-Ul-Fitr (End of Ramadan) in Kenya would be Thursday, July 7, 2016.
As per the aforementioned Gazette Notice ("It is notified for general information that Thursday, July 7, 2016, will be observed as a public holiday to mark Eid-Ur-Fitr Day, pursuant to section 3 of the Public Holidays Act"), contrary to what happened 4 years ago (2012-08-13), but in line with what happened other years (2015-07-10, 2014-07-24, 2013-08-06, 2011-08-19, 2010-09-08 and 2009-09-11), Kenya has declared its 2016 End of Ramadan public holiday on a later date than many, though not all, other Muslim countries (2016-06-30 and 2016-06-30).
