Uganda's Permanent Secretary Ministry of Public Service, Salome Nyamungu, after initial hesitancy, late last week, has announced that Friday, February 16, 2018, would be a non-working public holiday in Uganda, in honour of Archbishop Janani Luwum who was killed on February 16, 1977.

Today's announcement that Friday, February 16, 2018, would be a non-working public holiday in Uganda, in honour of Archbishop Janani Luwum, is in line the initial announcement by Uganda's President, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, that, beginning this in 2015, February 16 would be a new annual non-working public holiday in Uganda, in honour of Archbishop Janani Luwum who was killed on February 16, 1977, during Idi Amin's rule (2015-02-16), subsequent announcements (2016-02-09), and with the recent announcement of 2018 public holidays in Uganda (2018-01-31).
