Malawian President, Peter Mutharika, acting as the Minister responsible for the Public Service, has announced that, once again, the public sector holidays for the end of the year 2017, would be extended by declaring December 27-28-29 as non-working public holidays in Malawi for Malawi's civil servants.
The aforementioned announcement ("The extended holidays are meant to enable the Civil Servants to celebrate Christmas and New Year festivities with their families and to allow them have adequate time to travel to and from various destinations during the festive season, while giving them adequate time to rest") means that Malawi's civil servants will wind up officials duties on December 22, 2017 and resume work on January 2, 2018, and is in addition to the list of official non-working public holidays in Malawi for the calendar year 2017, as released by the Malawi Government, late last year (05-Dec-2016), and in line with the permanent addition of Boxing Day as an annual non-working public holiday over the past few years (26-Dec-2013, 24-Dec-2013, 18-Dec-2012 and 01-Oct-2007), although the statement signed by Chief Secretary to Government, Lloyd Muhara, makes it clear that this extension of Malawi's 2017 public holidays is limited to the public sector ("The granting of the public holidays for the said extended period of festivities does not mean a declaration of public holidays in Malawi.").
