Following on the heels of the recent decision by Kenya‘s election commission to move the upcoming general elections re-vote ordered by the Supreme Court, from Tuesday, October 17, 2017, to Thursday, October 26, 2017, acting Interior Cabinet Secretary, Fred Matiang'i, has gazetted Thursday, October 26, 2017, as a non-working public holiday in Kenya, "to allow Kenyans to vote in the repeat presidential election".

Tuesday, August 8, 2017, the date of the initial general elections 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), and we expected October 17 to be similarly declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Kenya (04-Sep-2017), until the recent change of date to Thursday, October 26, 2017.

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).
