The National Environment Management Authority (Nema) has raised concerns over the use of foreign newspapers to wrap food.
County Nema boss Samuel Lopokoyoit (pictured) said they would investigate the source of the papers, which he noted were littering the streets.
“We are going to establish how these newspapers have been coming into the county. It is against the law to bring waste and deposit it in another country,” said Mr Lopokoyoit.
He said Nema was concerned about the safety of the papers, which are said to be cheaply available to vendors. This came in the wake of a ban on plastic bags to save the environment.
