RETIRED President Moi’s pet day has been starved of budgetary allocation by CS Dr.Fred Matiang’i.

The CS in an elaborate press statement says Mashujaa day accommodated all heroes…hence no need to allocate public funds to the day set aside to celebrate the Nyayo Era of peace, love, and unity.


The Internal Security Minister said by declaring the day a public holiday, he was only obeying a court order public Holiday.

He, however, said he had forwarded the matter to Parliament for legislation. The CS instead said the focus will be on Mashujaa Day set to be celebrated on 20th October.
