The government of Kenya, has introduced legislation, the "Statute Law (Miscellaneous Amendment) Bill, 2020", sponsored by Majority leader Aden Duale, to further change the public holidays of Kenya, whereby Moi Day would be renamed as Utamaduni.

Recall that, late last year (2019-12-19), the government of Kenya approved changes to the public holidays legislation of Kenya, whereby Moi Day would be renamed as Huduma Day, while Boxing Day would henceforth be renamed to Utamaduni Day, while the Interior ministry had been in the process of introducing a bill to Parliament to amend the Public Holidays Act, Cap 110, and cancel Moi Day as a public holiday in Kenya (2019-10-08, 2018-10-08 and 2018-10-01).
