Gov't waives duty on dates during Ramadhan

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 of June and July 2016 will be waived to help the Muslim community to fulfill their religious obligations.

Speaking when he led Kenyans in marking the first national Madaraka Day celebrations to be held at Afraha Stadium in Nakuru since independence, 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,” President Kenyatta 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.
