Kenya court dismisses attempt to stop plastic bag ban

Kenya’s High Court has rejected an attempt to stop a ban on plastic shopping bags, due to come into force on Monday.

Manufacturers of the bags argued that 80,000 jobs would be lost.

This is the third attempt in the past 10 years that Kenya has tried to ban plastic bags.

The environment ministry says anyone caught using the bags will be liable to a fine of at least $19,000 (£15,000) or a jail term of at least a year.

A number of other African countries have banned plastic bags, including Rwanda and Eritrea.
