Atheists Demand National Holiday in Kenya by : 3:10 pm On August 21, 2018
A society of Kenyan atheists, in a press release on Sunday, 19th August, has called on the government to create a public holiday for non-believers on 17 February, called Atheist Day

The Atheists in Kenya or (AIK) as they a simply called, in the press release said “Kenyans who do not believe in god or gods, deserve a public holiday too” in a statement issued on Sunday, days after the government declared 21 August a public holiday to mark the Muslim Sallah celebration.

The statement further reads:

We will use the occasion to show our lack of faith in Gods, by holding godless parades in various counties and also to increase awareness about atheism in Kenya.”

They settled on the date of 17 February because it was the day when AIK was registered as a society, a move which faced complaints from the country’s clergy.

“We believe that this will promote freedom of religion as a human right in Kenya,” AIK said in the statement. The society estimates that 5% of the population is atheist.

Many Kenyans are yet to ‘come out’ and be publicly known as atheists as they do not want their parents or family and friends to know that they are atheists.

Trying times huh,  even for the ‘godless’.

Enjoy the holidays.
