Those attending state meetings or as visitors to State House will no longer quench the thirst from a bottled water.
From today they will be served drinking water from jar. President Uhuru Kenyatta gave that directive in bid to fight proliferation of plastics.
During the cabinet meeting yesterday in State House the Cabinet Secretaries were served water from jars which was not the case for years.
Uhuru issued a directive in June this year for the ban of single use plastics in all government protected areas including game parks, airports, beaches, among others, which is set to be implemented in June 2020.
