Mozambique's Minister of Labor and Social Security, Margarida Adamugy Talapa, has announced that Friday, April 15, 2022, would be a full-day non-working public sector holiday in Mozambique, "for all workers and civil servants who profess the Christian religion, on the occasion of Easter Week".

As per the aforementioned announcement, the upcoming one-off non-working public holiday in Mozambique "The time allowance, for the whole day, does not cover workers, whose nature of activity does not allow interruption in the public interest".

The declaration of one-off non-working public holidays is a relatively common feature of Mozambique's official public holidays calendar, as Mozambique's Labour Code gives the Minister of Labour the authority to declare one-off public holidays in Mozambique (2021-12-30, 2021-12-22, 2021-07-17, 2021-05-12, 2021-03-31, 2020-12-29, 2020-12-22, 2020-04-09, 2019-10-01, 2019-09-03, 2019-08-09, 2019-08-07, 2019-04-18, 2018-10-09, 2018-06-14, 2015-01-14, 2013-12-21, 2013-08-01, 2012-12-21, 2011-12-05, 2011-10-16, 2010-12-29, 2010-12-23,...).

Last year, Minister Adamugy Talapa had similarly announced a one-off non-working public sector holiday in Mozambique, on Friday, April 2, 2021, on account of Good Friday (2021-03-31).
