In a suit filed at the High Court, one Ibrahim Mohamud Ibrahim has faulted the government for allowing production, manufacturing, distribution, management, dissemination and consumption of tobacco in the country regardless of its effects on health.

Mr Ibrahim has sued the Ministry of Health, its Cabinet Secretary Sicily Kariuki and the Attorney-General in a suit in which cigarette maker British American Tobacco (BAT) company is listed as an interested party.

He argues that farmers, manufacturers, traders and consumers are at risk yet the government has created an enabling environment that leaves everyone exposed to smoking dangers.

Cigarette maker fights Nairobi’s bid to curb public smoking

Cigarette maker British American Tobacco Kenya (BAT) has upped pressure against a proposed law to control usage of tobacco products within the capital, Nairobi.

The Nairobi Securities Exchange-listed cigarette maker said during the public hearing on the draft law that it would bring about negative ‘unintended consequences.’

The draft law seeks to have City Hall inspectors enforce the law that restricts smoking in public places

‘While we understand the need for sensible regulation, I’m very pleased that so many stakeholders from across the entire supply chain attended the hearing to highlight their personal concerns and the unintended consequences of this,’ said BAT Kenya managing director Beverly Spencer-Obatoyinbo in a statement.

#LegalizeIt: Kenyans’ raging debate on making bhang legal
