The display of honor from Uhuru became evident through a cabinet meeting that he chaired. And through the very meeting the head of state went ahead to rename Moi Day- October 10, as Huduma Day.
The change was in harmony with Moi's wish that the day to be celebrated as a day of service and volunteerism. Uhuru made the importance of the day sink a little deeper when he approved the day to be commemorated as a day of service.
In line with a statement tabled by the Presidential Communication and Strategic Unit (PSCU) it is disclosed that Boxing Day-December 26 was also renamed to Utamaduni day.
Utamaduni day was therefore set aside to celebrate and appreciate the country's rich heritage and cultural diversity, making the memories of our forefathers to linger in our thoughts, reliving every single bit of cultural excellence.
Leaning our argument on a court document, it's worth noting that after the 2010 Constitution was promulgated Kenyans didn't celebrate Moi day for years following its removal from the list of Kenyan national holidays, however, on November 8, 2017, it was restored as a national holiday after George Odunga pronounced its removal as a contravention of the law.
