Happy Maulidi

Dear friends,

on 13th and 14th we only have been in the office for few hours, because it was a public holiday: Maulidi (English: Mawlid).

It is the birthday of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad and is celebrated in the third month of the Islamic calendar.
In Tanzania the largest celebrations take place on Zanzibar, in Kenya the most famous place is Lamu.

On Maulidi you will find people eating a lot together with friends and family and texts of the Koran are recited.
