Government throws meaningless public holiday


Monday the 25th May will be a public holiday.

The government has announced the public holiday for Kenyans many of whom are already at home to celebrate Eid-ul-fitri with their Muslims brothers and sisters.

The Muslims are expected to celebrate the end of Holy month of Ramadan on Sunday or Monday depending on the sighting of the moon.

However, this year’s celebration is challenged by the Coronavirus pandemic as the Muslim faithful will not converge in mosques or various grounds to mark the prayers as the norm.

It might be a meaningless public holiday as many people are already at home following government calls urging Kenyans to stay at home.

The ‘stay home stay safe’ phenomenon has been embraced by many have lost their economic activities and jobs thus facing hardships.
