NAIROBI– Interior and National Administration Cabinet Secretary Prof Kithure Kindiki has gazetted tomorrow as a public holiday for Muslims to mark Idd-ul-Fitr end of Ramadhan.

A special gazette notice dated April 9, 2024, contains the declaration of the holiday.

“It is notified for the general information of the public that, in the exercise of the powers conferred by section 2(1) of the Public Holidays Act, the Cabinet Secretary for Interior and National Administration declares that Wednesday, the 10th April 2024 shall be a Public Holiday to mark Idd-ul-Fitr,” read the notice in part.

Muslims have been observing the holy month of Ramadhan since March 11, 2024.

During this period, Muslims used the time to pray, fast and offer service to their communities.

The announcement comes a day after President William Ruto hosted Muslim leaders across the country for an Iftar Dinner at State House last evening.
