Labour Day, also known as International Workers’ Day, is a public holiday celebrated annually on May 1st in Kenya. It is a day dedicated to celebrating the achievements of workers and the contributions they make to the country’s economy and society.
On this day, Kenyan workers and labor unions hold parades and rallies to highlight labor-related issues such as job security, fair wages, and safe working conditions. The day is also an opportunity to reflect on the challenges faced by workers and to push for policies and programs that improve their working conditions and welfare.
Labour Day has been celebrated in Kenya since the country gained independence in 1963. It is a national holiday, and most businesses and government offices are closed to allow workers to participate in the celebrations.
