The Fédération des associations islamiques du Burkina (FAIB) has announced that the new Moon of the month of Shawwal had not been sighted tonight, and therefore that the upcoming Korité public holiday, marking the end of the month of Ramadan, would be observed on Thursday, May 13, 2021, in the Burkina Faso.

The aforementioned communiqué is in line with the previously-released list of official non-working public holidays in Burkina Faso for the calendar year 2021, as announced by the government of Burkina Faso earlier this year (2021-01-11).

As Thursday, May 13, 2021, is already a public holiday in the Burkina Faso, for Ascension, there had been widespread hope that the Korité public holiday would occur on Wednesday, the 12th of May, 2021.
