Smoking Shisha Remains Illegal In Kenya As Courts Fail to lift ban



Smoking shisha remains illegal as a judge has declined to temporarily lift the ban imposed by Health Cabinet Secretary Cleopa Mailu. Milimani justice Roselyn Aburili instead asked petitioners to file an application for stay orders, that will be heard during an inter-parties hearing on Friday. On December 29, justice John Mativo directed the petitioners, who had sought orders to lift the ban, to file the main case and serve the CS and Attorney General Githu Muigai with court papers before the hearing on Thursday.

Fifteen people led by Kennedy Langat, Maurice Obunga, Stephen Irungu, Vivian Shikweya and Henry Gitau moved to court a day after Mailu imposed the ban on the importation, promotion and use of Shisha in Kenya. Through their lawyers led by Victor Savula, they said the ban was unconstitutional and that it violated the rights of employees. They also said it left manufacturers with costs amounting to billions of shillings.

They said they were among importers, manufacturers, sellers, promoters and users of shisha in the country.
