Monday's Holiday

The Ministry of Interior has distanced itself from reports indicating that it declared Monday, October 24, a public holiday.

Officials at the Ministry insisted that outgoing CS Fred Matiang'i did not gazette the holiday to allow Kenyans to celebrate the Diwali festival insisting that it was highly unlikely as the event was not celebrated in the previous years.

Kenyans are urged to ignore false reports doing rounds on social media and instead proceed with their normal working duties.

Reports on the purported Monday holiday emerged on social media following government publications on the regulation and use of fireworks during the festivities. This, however, is not the first time misleading reports on public holidays have been in circulation. In the last year, the Kenyan government was made to distance itself from a fake gazette notice that had been gone viral.
