Ugandans are addicted to polythene. Everything on sale in Uganda from cigarettes to food sold in restaurants is covered with polythene which litters the poorly cleaned streets.
The maintenance of Kampala has gone for a toss. The airtime and polythene waste is rampant and people with out toilets are using the polythene as their savior.
House wives love them for preparing food as well lighting Sigiri.
Despite the ban on the polythene great quantities are imported to the country and are freely sold on the streets. One wonders why the laws are passed and nothing is done to enforce them
