Monday, July 11,2022 has been declared a public holiday.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i said the holiday will allow the Muslim faithful celebrate Eid-ul-Adha.

CS Matiang’i made the announcement via a gazette notice on Friday.

Idd ul Azha, also called “Eid al Adha” (meaning “Feast of the Sacrifice”), is celebrated in Kenya every year by the 10 percent of Kenya’s people who follow Islam.

Idd-ul-Adha is the second of two Islamic holidays celebrated worldwide each year (the other being Eid al-Fitr), and considered the holier of the two. It honors the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God’s command.
