NAKURU, Kenya, Jun 1 – President Uhuru Kenyatta has announced that the Government will waive duty on dates during the Holy month of Ramadhan.

The President said duty on dates during the month which runs between June and July will be waived to aid the Muslim community fulfill their religious obligations.

Speaking when he led Kenyans in marking the first national Madaraka Day celebration at Afraha Stadium in Nakuru, President Kenyatta sent a message of goodwill and best wishes to Kenyan Muslims as they prepare to observe the Holy Month of Ramadhan.

“As our Muslim brothers and sisters prepare to observe this holy month of fasting and purification, I send them my best wishes,” he said.

He directed the State Department for Special Programmes to ensure that vulnerable families are supported with the foods they will require during the Ramadhan period.
