Speaking during the celebrations, Duale noted that, the gazzetment of Eid as a public holiday highlights the government’s acknowledgment and respect for diverse religious traditions within the country.

“Amidst the vibrant atmosphere of prayer and reflection, the gazzetment of Eid as public holiday and Our participation as leaders highlights the government’s acknowledgment and respect for diverse religious traditions within the country.“ Said Duale.

Adding that: “Such gestures not only promote social cohesion but also demonstrate solidarity with the Muslim community during their religious festivities.

The CS also lauded President William Ruto for abolishing vetting for all Kenyans seeking to get National Identity cards.

On Monday, President Ruto announced that he will soon issue out a policy document that will provide ways for how people irrespective of the region they come from can get IDs.

“Starting Next month (May 2024) there will be no vetting for Kenyans who want to get ID cards,” he said.

“I’m going to be issuing a policy document to make sure that we have a mechanism that is similar to other Kenyans so that we don’t discriminate based on religion or region,” Ruto said.
