Manufacturers in court to stop plastics ban

Kenya Association of Manufacturers has now moved to court seeking orders to suspend the ban of manufacture, importation and sale of plastic bags used for commercial and household packaging.

Through an affidavit by Association CEO, Phyllis Wakiaga, KAM claims there are gaps in the adopted regulation and weak enforcement mechanisms in the Gazette notice banning the use of plastic bags.

However the Ministry of Environment, in its response, has dismissed the application by manufacturers, saying there was sufficient public participation before the law was passed.
