Kenya: It'll Be a Wet Holiday - Meteorological Department

10 October 2019

If you were planning to spend today's public holiday outdoors, then it is advisable for you to change your plans.

This is according to the Kenya Meteorological Department who warned Kenyans to brace for rain and thunderstorm throughout Thursday.

Through their Twitter handle, the Meteorological Department said there would be rain in the morning followed by showers and thunderstorm in the afternoon.

"Do you have plans this Holiday? Be prepared to catch some rains in the morning, Showers and Thunderstorms afternoon. Don't forget, you can visit our website http://meteo.go.ke for other forecast products," tweeted Kenya Met.

The department did not specify which parts of the country would experience the rains.

Kenyans have been thrilled since Tuesday when Interior CS Fred Matiang'i announced October 10, a public holiday.

The day has in the past been marked as Moi Day in celebration of the country's second president Daniel Moi.

The holiday was scraped off the list of National holidays in 2010 during the promulgation of the constitution.

Dr Matiang'i announcement was heartily welcomed by KOT and through the hashtag #ParteAfterParte shared their joy.

Long weekend #ParteAfterParte
