Manufacturers lose petition to suspend plastics ban


Nairobi,KENYA:The Kenya association of manufacturers has lost a petition seeking to suspend the plastic ban set to take effect on Monday.

In the petition, the association had argued that the ban would amount to a loss of more than 400,000 jobs both directly and indirectly.

While giving his rulling on Friday in Nairobi, High court judge Mwerera Eboso  said the petition would injure the interests of the state.

Therefore, the ban declared by Environment CS Judy Wakhungu will still take place on Monday 28th August.
