The United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP), whose mandate is to encourage the protection of the environment, has been caught going against that.
In the ongoing meeting, dubbed United Nations Environmental Assembly (UNEA) at the UN office in Nairobi – at Gigiri, a Twitter user shared a rather unusual sight about the food packaging.
One would expect that at such a high-level meeting and one in which environmental protection is being discussed, things like single-use plastics would be non-existent, but alas!
It isn’t surprising that UNEP, which is headquartered in Nairobi, is surrounded by filthiest rivers, environmental degradation sponsored by government officials and lethargy captured by tribal staffing.
Nepotism and tribalism are not excuses to run an organization in a corrupt manner.
Even as Nairobi City biodiversity and Mau forest ecosystems are being plundered and destroyed, UNEP is curiously silent.
UNEP has failed
A few years after the ban on single-use plastic, the corrupt government of UhuRuto were in talks with some big oil firms in the US to roll back the ban.
Environmentalists fought back the losing battle, even as the media loudly announced that the ban on single-use plastic has not had any positive effect.
It is all in the scheme to return single-use plastics where the big oil industry has bribed the media and the politician.
Meanwhile, UNEP is loudly silent.
We CANNOT recycle our way out of the #PlasticPollutionCrisis!! And we CANNOT negate all the progress Kenya has made in the banning of single-use plastic >> https://t.co/OQsPEx4Lcc

Kenya is already a dumping site for toxic nuclear waste in North Eastern and Mount Kenya.

…because the UN is more concerned about protecting its reputation than about bringing justice to victims, those who are perceived to be tainting the organisation are quickly sacrificed – Rasnah Warah, Author UNSilenced
