The Cabinet Secretary of Interior Dr Fred Matiang'i has confirmed that October 10, 2020, will be a public holiday.

In a  statement issued on Friday morning Dr Matiang'i announced that the holiday will be named Huduma Day.
"In line with provisions of the Public Holiday Act (Cap 110, Laws of Kenya) it is hereby confirmed that 10 October 2020 will be a public holiday named Huduma Day," the statement read in part.
"The day will be observed through national prayers that will highlight service and volunteerism to the community," it continued.
Dr Matiang'i urged Kenyans to participate in the activities of the day through prayers and promote national unity, social justice, cohesion and sustainable development in their communities.
October 10
In 2017, the High Court reinstated 10 October, which was formally Moi Day, as a Public Holiday.
Judge George Odunga stated that the omission to have October 10 observed as Public Holiday is illegality and a contravention of the Public Holidays Act.
Judge Odunga refrained from prescribing the manner in which the day is to be celebrated noting that is the mandate of Parliament and the Interior Cabinet Secretary.
Moi Day was a Public Holiday celebrated on October 10 to honour the late retired President Daniel Arap Moi but it was removed from the list of Kenya national holidays following the promulgation of the Constitution of Kenya in August 2010.
