The government has declared September 1 a holiday for Muslims to celebrate Idd Ul Adha. Acting Interior CS Fred Matiang'i said the holiday is only for Muslims. "Employers should allow them to be away from work but for non-Muslims, this will be a normal working day," he said in a notice on Wednesday.

The minister noted the holiday is only listed for Muslims but that plans are underway for a change. He said a bill will be presented in Parliament to make it a national public holiday.
