Cabinet approves renaming of two national holidays
Cabinet on Thursday approved the renaming of Moi Day which falls on 10th October as Huduma Day.
This is in line with former President Daniel Arap Moi’s desire that the day be commemorated as a day of service and volunteerism.
Under the proposals to amend the Public Holidays Act (Cap 109), Cabinet also approved the renaming of Boxing Day which falls on 26th December to Utamaduni Day.
Utamaduni Day will be set aside to celebrate the country’s rich cultural diversity and heritage.
The proposed amendments to the Public Holidays Act will take effect once approved by Parliament.
