25-06-2017 by redazione

The month of fasting of Muslims ended, Ramadan on the coast of Kenya involved a good part of the Islamic faith population.
After the usual 29 days of spiritual cleansing, during which from the dawn to the sunset believers and virtuous people could not eat and (apart from the elderly, the children and the sick) did not even drink at the beginning of the new moon this morning around 5.30am, Ramadan closed and prayers began.
Today in Arab Homes and Muslim families lunch will be a great party that will last two days.
For a number of years, Kenya has put in its rule that when a Sunday feast is over, it is moved to the next day.
So even tomorrow, Monday, June 26, will be "public holidays", so public and private stores, banks and all the activities they want will remain closed.
