Court temporarily lifts ban on non-woven bags
The High Court has temporarily suspended notice banning the use and sale of non-woven carrier bags currently in the market by Nema.
Justice Makau Mutua issued the reprieve to manufacturers and traders of non-woven shopping bags on Thursday afternoon.
The ban on the popular polypropylene bags sold in supermarkets and other retail stores came into effect on Monday. Nema explained that the bags were ‘‘very thin, poor quality non-reusable”.
