The debate over whether Monday is a public holiday or not has been a hot topic among the Azimio supporters for a few weeks now. The matter has been further complicated by the fact that the Interior CS, Professor Kithure Kindiki, has not yet provided a clear answer to this question. However, recently Professor Kindiki has finally clarified the matter and has stated that Monday is a normal working day just like any other.
The Azimio supporters have long been campaigning for Monday to be declared a public holiday in order to give people an additional day off to enjoy their free time. There have been several arguments put forward by the Azimio supporters in favour of Monday being declared a public holiday. They argue that it would help to improve people’s mental and physical health by providing them with the opportunity to engage in leisure activities. Moreover, it would also help to reduce stress and fatigue that is caused by the hectic and demanding lifestyle that many people experience.
However, Professor Kindiki has dismissed these arguments and has stated that Monday is a normal working day just like any other. He has argued that while it is important to provide people with the opportunity to enjoy their leisure time, it is also important to ensure that the country’s productivity and economic growth are not adversely affected. He has pointed out that declaring Monday as a public holiday would lead to a loss of productivity as people would be taking an additional day off from work.
Furthermore, Professor Kindiki has also argued that it is not feasible for the government to declare Monday as a public holiday as it would put an additional burden on the economy. He has pointed out that the government would have to compensate people for the additional day off and this would lead to an increase in public expenditure. Moreover, it would also lead to a decrease in revenue as businesses would be closed on Monday and would not be able to generate any income.
In conclusion, it is clear that Monday is not a public holiday and that it is a normal working day just like any other. While it is important to ensure that people are given the opportunity to enjoy their leisure time, it is also important to ensure that the country’s productivity and economic growth are not adversely affected. Therefore, Professor Kindiki’s statement that Monday is a normal working day is the right decision.
