July 2 not holiday

Office of the President (OP) wishes to inform members of the public that July 2, 2019 is not a public holiday.

A news release from OP says even though the day appears as a public holiday in official calendars and diaries, the Government of Botswana would like to clarify that such is not the case. 

It says although the date in question was declared a public holiday in 2018, the same does not apply in 2019 as Section 2(1) (i) of the Public Holidays Act provides that if a public holiday falls on a Sunday, then the following Monday shall be observed as a holiday. 

Therefore, on the basis of the foregoing, the public is advised that since Sir Seretse Khama Day will be observed on Monday July 1, 2019, Tuesday July 2, 2019 is not legally provided for as a public holiday, it says. Ends
