Manufacturers undermine implementation of ban on Kaveera
Government announced a total ban on the importation and production of all polythene materials in 2009 arguing that they pose a danger to the environment and violate the citizens’ right to a clean environment
But Implementation of the ban has been affected by protests from the business community, including manufactures and some agencies.
National Environment management authority Executive director Tom Okurut says they are e embarking to educating the public on the dangers of the Kaveera before implementation of the ban can start.
