Mozambique's Minister of Labour (Ministra do Trabalho, Emprego e Segurança Social - MITESS), Vitória Dias Diogo, has announced a one-off non-working public sector holidays in Mozambique, on April 19, 2019, on account of Good Friday.

As per the aforementioned announcement, the one-off non-working public sector holidays in Mozambique, on April 19, 2019, on account of Good Friday, is limited to Christians ("tolerância de ponto a todos os trabalhadores e funcionários públicos que professam a religião cristã"), but we expect many to become Christian just for that occasion.

The declaration of one-off non-working public holidays is a relatively common feature of Mozambique's official public holidays calendar (2018-10-09, 2018-06-14, 2016-12-19, 2016-02-26, 2015-12-30, 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.
