Zambian President, Edgar Lungu, has declared Friday, October 25, 2019, as a one-off non-working public holiday in the Zambia, to link the upcoming annual Independence Day public holiday with the subsequent weekend ("Citizens who will be traveling will also use Friday and the whole weekend to return to their homes.").

One-off non-working public holidays in the Zambia are usually related to elections (2018-07-20, 2016-09-09, 2016-08-09, 2016-07-18, 2016-01-04, 2015-10-19, 2015-01-13, 2015-01-07, 2012-05-01, 2011-09-15, 2011-07-28, 2010-02-07, 2008-12-14, 2008-10-23, 2008-09-10, 2006-09-27 and 2008-08-26), but on some occasions, one-off non-working public holidays were declared in the Zambia for events unrelated to elections, such as last year (2018-03-06), when the Government of Zambia declared Friday, March 9, 2018, as one-off non-working public holidays in Zambia on account of the upcoming "commemoration of the International Women’s Day on Thursday".
