Nairobians were on Thursday forced to fish out the banned plastic bags to beat the rains which pounded the city mid-morning, never mind the risk which This particular presented.
Several residents were photographed in plastic handmade rain coats walking around the city.
Some women too used the commonest shower caps of plastic paper bags despite the ban which was effected on Monday.
The unexpected rains caught many flat footed hence the quick solution of using paper bags.
The National Environment Management Authority has since Monday been conducting awareness while confiscating paper bags found in markets.
