Mozambique's Ministry of Labour (Ministério do Trabalho, Emprego e Segurança Social - MITESS) has announced that Tuesday, January 2, 2018, would not be declared as a non-working public holiday in Mozambique.
More generally, the declaration of one-off non-working public holidays is a relatively common feature of Mozambique's official public holidays calendar (2015-01-14, 2013-12-21, 2013-08-01, 2012-12-21, 2011-12-05, 2011-10-16, 2010-12-29, 2010-12-23,...), in particular as Mozambique's Labour Code gives the Minister of Labour the authority to declare one-off public holidays in Mozambique, and in fact mandates them for Mozambique public holidays falling on a Sunday ("segundo a Lei do Trabalho, sempre que a data coincide com domingo, a suspensão das actividades laborais passa para o dia seguinte").
