DO NOT PANIC, NEMA TELLS PUBLIC
“We are asking members of the public not to be worried because most of them are in a dilemma. We will first give them adequate notice to get alternatives,” Nema director general Geoffrey Wahungu has said. “Our officers will have Nema uniforms and Nema cards for identification.” Soon after implementation, Nema intends to pass the baton to the county governments. Its corporate affairs department says the ban applies to all plastic carrier bags, commonly known as ‘juala’, and flat bags used for commercial and household packaging.
