Kenyans to be Arrested, Fined 4M or Imprisoned for 4Years if you Do This in The Following Region

Few years ago, the national environmental management authority (NEMA) raised alarm over the high rate of environmental pollution arising from careless disposal of plastic wastes in the country.

This saw the Government ban the use of plastic Carrier bags in most day to day activities, a move which saw a huge reduction of the volume of plastic waste dumped into the environment. However, it appears the plastic menace is slowly making its way back in most regions of the country.

And now, kenyans will soon land themselves at least four years in prison or risk a fine of Ksh 4Million in Nairobi county if they are found to be using plastic bags to carry food around the city.

This is according to a bill that is being proposed by the Nairobi City county plastic control that is currently going through the public participation stage. The bill provides for tough punishment for those who sell plastic and those who consume or buy them.

Interestingly, the bill also affects bread package in plastic bag, some supermarket products packaged in plastic and even water bottles that are made up of plastic.
