The Ministry of Interior and Coordination has come out clearly concerning the festival on 4 November.
It will be celebrated in Kenya on the 4th of November which is tomorrow. However, there have been claims online that it has been gazetted as a public holiday.
The Ministry of Interior has now cleared the air through a statement published on the official Twitter handle.
"The Government HAS NOT declared a public holiday on THURSDAY NOV 4, 2021. The purported gazette notice declaring a holiday is FAKE!" The statement read.
Often, the government announces a public holiday through a gazetteer notice written by the CS for Interior Dr Fred Matiang'I.
For Kenyans, it will be an ordinary day of the week.
