Environment and Natural Resources Cabinet Secretary Judi Wakhungu announced the ban on Tuesday.
 
"The CS for Environment and Natural Resources has with effect from six from date of this notice banned the manufacture, importation and use of all plastic bags used for commercial and household packaging," reads the Gazette notice dated February 28.
