The Ministry of Interior has denied widespread reports that there will be a pblic holiday on Thursday, November 4.
On its social media, the Ministry advised Kenyans to ignore a fake gazette notice saying that there will be a holiday to mark the Diwali celebrations.
“The Government HAS NOT declared a public holiday on Thursday Nov 4, 2021. The purported gazette notice declaring a holiday is fake!” the ministry wrote.
The message has attracted reactions from Kenyans, who are lovers of public holidays.
Here are some of the reactions from the disappointed souls.
@ Joy – “We demand equity Hindu community also need a public holiday why are they not given one. Christians have Easter and Christmas, Muslims 2 Eid celebrations with public holidays, Hindus just need one day to enjoy there fundamental rights with family and friends.”
@ Peter – “Acheni hizo sisi tushamark calendar…. Twapiga sherehe on 4th”
@ Wanjala – “We must also recognize Hindus………Mr Matiang’i kama tulikukosea tumesema Soree…..”
@ Brian – “So where is the Real one hawa wahindi wanakulanga holidays za wakristo ata sisi tunataka holiday yao.”
