Plastic bag banning, the Kenya Ministry of the Environment is serious about it.

Severe penis: 4 million shillings (about 35,000 euros) fine or 4 years imprisonment for those who will be found in plastic bags or companies that will use it.
Environment Minister Judy Wakhungu, in announcing the planned punishment, has recognized that it is extreme solutions and hopes that it should never be applied.
There will be no doubt an awareness campaign and for at least a year the customs entry will be monitored in order not to bring in bags and plastic bags.
Meanwhile, as provided by the Government, local businesses will produce baskets and bags with recycled or ecological materials.
Choosing Kenya, which will be the second African country to ban plastic after Rwanda, is the first step to reducing waste toxicity, which is one of the emerging problems of the country.
