That’s right folks, our Government has announced that the 27th of December will now be a public holiday. Acting President Kgalema Motlanthe has just announced this in terms of the Public Holiday Act. This comes shortly after the trade union federation FEDUSA called upon the government to approve this.
Pretty awesome to have another holiday at that time of the year, cool for me because I am taking forced leave, but now I’ll have another day off for a rainy day in 2012!
I wonder if this will have an impact on the economy, considering that this time of the year is normally incredibly busy for some industries.
