Tanzania’s plan to ban use of
plastic bags sparks debate
DAR ES SALAAM, (Xinhua) --
Tanzania’s imminent plan to ban use of plastic
bags sparked a heated public debate on Saturday with some people
supporting the ban and others rejecting it.
discussion hosted in Dar es Salaam by the Vice-President’s
Office that oversees the environment docket was aimed at
collecting views from the public on the impending ban on the use
of plastic bans according to environmental laws.
after the discussions were opened by January Makamba, Minister
of State in the Vice-President’s Office responsible for Union
and Environment Affairs, Tanzania Plastic Manufacturers
Association (PMAT) said instead of banning the use of plastic
bags the government should control the use of the bags.
chairman Joseph Wasonga said the association has submitted eight
recommendations to the government requesting it to allow them to
continue producing plastic bags with strong environmental
protection controls, including recycling them after use.
said the government should control imports of plastic bags which
accounted for 70 percent of the market, hugely contributing to
environmental pollution because they were substandard.
solution to this environmental problem is to produce
bio-degradable plastic bags which are environmentally friendly,”
many countries in the word such as the United Arab Emirates have
begun to enact laws that forced industrialists to start using
raw materials that make bio-degradable plastic bags.
our government to imitate this example by asking every factory
to use the same raw materials,” said Wasonga.
if the ban on plastic bags was enforced the government will lose
revenues because the association paid more than 23 million U.S.
dollars in terms of annual taxes.
added that PMAT employed about 6,000 Tanzanians, who were likely
to lose jobs if business was shut down.
if the government went ahead with its resolve to ban the plastic
bags manufacturers were likely to lose about 50 million dollars
invested in a number of factories as most of the money was
secured from bank loans.
other hand, Jumanne Mgoga, Chairman of the Union for Production
of Alternative Bags, supported the government’s decision saying
plastic bags were hazardous to the environment and human health.
appealed for stronger cooperation with the government to
eliminate the risks posed by plastic bags.
is a need to change direction in order to save people’s lives
and to protect the environment,” said Mgoga.
Mgoye, Secretary of the Association of Alternative Bags, said
the use of plastic bags must be banned to protect both the
environment and people’s health.
said available data showed that in 2050 there will be more
plastic bags in the sea than fish, calling for serious actions
to address the problem.
August last year the government issued a notice of intention to
impose a total ban on plastic bags by January 1 this year.
notice said the government provided a four-month grace period to
owners of plastic bags manufacturing factories to take specific
steps by investing in an alternative bags and plastic waste
April, this year, Makamba told the National Assembly that the
government would impose a total ban on plastic bags business by
January, next year.
bags and sachets have for years been used for packing water,
alcohol and other products.
notice said inability of plastic bags to decompose affects soil
quality, litters various parts of the country and contribute to
the blockage of sewerage and drainage infrastructure.
Zuma reiterates call for
radical economic transformation
CAPE TOWN, (Xinhua) --
President Jacob Zuma on Saturday reiterated his
call for radical socio-economic transformation to correct the
wrongs of apartheid.
Africa has high rates of unemployment (which hovers around 27
percent) because of the structure of the economy and labour
market -- another direct effect of apartheid, Zuma said at the
launch of the Truman Magubane Family Foundation in
Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal Province.
foundation is aimed at supporting underprivileged children in
various fields. Magubane, 74, is an anti-apartheid hero and
spent 15 years imprisoned on Robben Island off Cape Town.
Africa, Zuma said, continues to suffer the consequences of
apartheid policies today even as the government led by the
African National Congress (ANC) has expanded access to education
why we speak of radical socio-economic transformation: the
fundamental change in the structure, systems, institutions and
patterns of ownership and control of the economy,” Zuma noted.
several reasons for changing the structure of the economy, Zuma
said South Africa’s economy was built around commodities for
export to Europe and later the Americas and other regions.
roads and rail were constructed so that they led from the mine
shafts and the farms straight to the harbours like Durban,
according to Zuma.
“Commodity prices are set in the international market. In other
words the minerals come from our land but we do not determine
their price,” said Zuma.
large economies buy minerals from South Africa as raw materials
and manufacture goods which they sell back to the country at
exorbitant prices, he said.
Capitalism works in such a manner that at times more is produced
than what can be sold, resulting in the prices being reduced and
commodity-based economies suffer, he explained.
It is in
the nature of capitalism to concentrate capital in fewer and
fewer enterprises, Zuma said.
Historically all the capital is controlled largely by white men,
who hold capital here and abroad instinctively become suspicious
when we talk about changing the structure of the economy because
they are making a lot of money from the economy as it is.
have to protect their hold on the economy even if it means they
have to destroy our spirits and take our lives,” Zuma said.
Africa must re-industrialize so that more jobs can be created,
want to beneficiate our minerals and agricultural products so
that we add more value and do not depend on import of finished
goods from other countries,” the president said.
