Namibia’s leading captains of industry are still dragging feet on the motion to accelerate the ban of plastic use, rather asking for more research to be carried out before the ban can be put in place.

Spearheading the agitation for a moratorium on the use of plastic and the formulation of law to effect the move is Elize Shakalela, and although her call has gotten the attention of government and the private sector, nothing much has happened.
