Namibia celebrates Workers’ Day on 1 May. This is just Labour Day with a slightly different name and is observed in much the same way as in other countries of the world.

On 4 May, it’s another holiday called Cassinga Day. As this is also a day off for the workers of Namibia, it’s often possible to get a four-day weekend if the holidays land just right. Or, some may simply take off the two intervening days regardless.

For Workers’ Day, the president of the country gives a much-anticipated speech. He emphasises progress made in the past in regard to labour reforms and highlights points where additional change is still needed.
