How Kenyans reacted to Wednesday public holiday

There was protest and excitement in equal measure after the government declared Wednesday a public holiday to allow Kenyans to travel and vote on Thursday.

The declaration gave Kenyans a two-day holiday and online, those in self-employment were furious while others, mostly employed, celebrated.

Some users lamented how the declaration of two days was not good for the economy while others cited ongoing court cases seeking to bar the polls.

However, Chief Justice David Maraga has allowed court officers involved in the election day related litigation to work on Wednesday.
