The Senegalese Minister of Labour, Samba Sy, has announced that Senegalese president, Macky Sall, had decided to declare Monday, October 29, 2018, the day after the upcoming Grand Magal de Touba, as an additional day of public holiday in Sénégal.

As per the aforementioned announcement, "En application de l’article 8 du décret n° 74-1125 du 19 novembre 1974 fixant le régime de la fête nationale et du premier mai et celui des autres fêtes légales, le Grand Magal de Touba étant célébré le dimanche 28 octobre 2018, Monsieur le Président de la République a décidé de déclarer pont et fériée la journée du lundi 29 octobre 2018".

Earlier this month (10-Oct-2018), the Senegalese commission d’observation du croissant lunaire de Touba has announced that the first day of the month of Safar would be tomorrow and, therefore, that the 2018 Magal de Touba would take place on Sunday, October 28, 2018.
