Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i has announced Monday December 13, 2021 as public holiday.

This is by dint of Jamhuri Day falling on a Sunday.

Matiang’i in a statement to newsrooms said the government will hold the celebrations on the said day but the country will have a holiday on Monday in line with the Constitution.

He noted that this will be in line with the provisions of Sections 2 and 4 of the Public Holidays Act (Cap 110).

“This day bears profound historical significance as it marks the attainment of Kenya’s independence and the birth of the Republic. All citizens are encouraged to honour and celebrate this day in a manner that promotes unity, national cohesion and economic progress in the country,” the statement read.
