Kenya's acting Interior Cabinet Secretary, Fred Matiang'i, has announced that the government of Kenya had declared Tuesday, November 28, 2017, as a public holiday to allow for the swearing-in of President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto for the second term in office.
Tuesday, August 8, 2017, the date of the initial general elections of this year in Kenya, had been declared a public holiday in Kenya (01-Aug-2017), as was Monday, March 4, 2013, the date of the previous general elections in Kenya (26-Feb-2013).
When a second election was called for, we expected October 17 to be similarly declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Kenya (04-Sep-2017), until the subsequent change of date to Thursday, October 26, 2017, declared as a public holiday in Kenya (19-Oct-2017) as was also Wednesday, October 25, 2017, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Kenya.
Note that the Assumption of Office of The President Bill constitutional bill (02-Aug-2012), mandates that an official non-working public holiday be declared in Kenya on the day of a presidential inauguration (03-Feb-2013 and 08-Jun-2012).
