Kuwait declare Thursday, Nov 15th as official holiday

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

For the second day in a row, the Kuwaiti Cabinet has decided to suspend work at all ministries, state institutions, colleges and public and private schools tomorrow (Thursday) as a precautionary move due to unstable rainy weather.

The decree is attributed to lingering heavy rains and forecasts of unstable weather conditions in the country, the cabinet said in its Twitter account on Wednesday.

It spoke highly of citizens and residents' commitment to all instructions and warnings announced by concerned state agencies and bodies. Accordingly, the Civil Service Commission said that Thursday (tomorrow) would be a day-off, pursuant to the cabinet's edict.

Yes natural calamities do not distinguish people based on their working sector. Kuwait Govt. should provide equal safety measures for all residents of Kuwait and should declare mandatory public holidays.
