There was pomp and color as Kenyan Muslims yesterday turned out in large numbers to mark Eid-ul-fitr in different parts of the country.
The big day comes after a month long fasting.
Although sighting of the moon was reported from several areas in Kenya including Garissa, the Chief Kadhi Ahmed Muhdhar announced that the day will be marked on Saturday, July 18, a day also gazetted by the government as a public holiday, his deputy Rashid Ali Omar however joined majority of Muslims to celebrate Eid ul Fitr at Nairobi’s Sir. Ali Muslim Club.
The Deputy said his boss ignored his frequent messages about moon sightings within Kenya signalling the end of the Holy month of Ramadan.
Below are pictures from the big day:
