BREAKING: Eid-Al-Fitr is tomorrow, Gov’t declares public holiday

EID-Al-FITR: The public service ministry on Thursday announced Friday, April 21, will be a public holiday to allow Muslims to host the Idd celebrations.

In her letter to information ministry permanent secretary (PS) Aminah Zawedde, Public Service PS Catherine Bitarakwate Musingwire said, “The honourable minister of public service informs the general public that tomorrow April 21, is Eid-Al-Fitr and will be observed as a public holiday throughout Uganda pursuant to the Public Holidays Act 1965”.

Eid al-Fitr is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide because it marks the end of the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan.

Different countries celebrate Eid festivals on different dates depending on the sighting of the moon.
