Moi Day was struck off from the list of Kenya national holidays following the promulgation of the Constitution of Kenya in August 2010.
It was later reinstated in 2017 following a court ruling by the Supreme court, which reversed the decision of the parliament.
"I declare that unless and until Parliament amends Schedule 1 of the said Act or the minister substitutes the same for another date, the 10th of October in each year shall continue being a Public Holiday." Justice Odunga
After the ruling, the Government complied and renamed it Huduma Day. Huduma Day is a public holiday in Kenya observed on October 10th each year.
