CS Matiang'i reinstates 10th October as Public Holiday

Interior CS Fred Matiang'i has said that Wednesday, 10th of October is a public holiday.

He however, did not articulate on how the formerly Moi Day will be celebrated.

The holiday was dropped from the list of national holidays after the 2010 Constitution came into effect.

Justice George Odunga of the High Court had in 2017 reinstated October 10 as Moi Day saying that its nullification was a contravention of the Public Holidays Act.

Justice George Odunga did not specify how the holiday should be marked by Kenyans

"Going by the court's decision, therefore, October 10 shall be a public holiday," Matiang'i said in a statement to the media on Monday.

"Owing to the elaborate celebrations lined up for all our heroes on Mashujaa Day (October 20),
I make no pronouncement on the manner in which October 10 shall be celebrated," he added.
