A public holiday to allow Kenyans to participate in the General Election.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi has gazetted Tuesday August 9th 2022 as a public holiday to enable Kenyans participate in the General Election.

The General Election will see Kenyans elect their preferred leaders including the President, Governors, Senators, Members of the National Assembly, Women representatives as well as Ward Representatives. Eligible Kenyan voters will elect the resident, MPs and senators, county governors and members of the 47 county assemblies.
