Now to that expose about the thriving illegal trade in plastics in kunya. Citizen TV has uncovered the dirty tricks used by unscrupulous business people to smuggle huge quantities of polythene into Kenya from neighbouring Uganda despite a government ban. Some of the traders use illegal crossings through which they sneak in other contraband material while the daring ones simply pass through the official border points where only minimum checks are made by officers. Tonight Citizen TV’s Patrick Igunza lifts the lid on this underground operation in our Monday special investigation, plastics without borders. Citizen TV is Kenya's leading television station commanding an audience reach of over 60% and in its over 12 years of existence as a pioneer brand for the Royal Media Services (RMS), it has set footprints across the country leaving no region uncovered.

According to legends,a team of Chinese sailors survived a shipwreck in the Indian Ocean waters and settled in Lamu Island. Historians contend the sailors were part of a fleet sent by the legendary Chinese navigator Zheng He. Six centuries later, the descendants of these Chinese sailors are visible in Lamu where China's ancient Maritime Silk road terminates. In Siyu village,archeologists have discovered artifacts like porcelain and coins that were symbols of the Ming dynasty. Mwamaka and her family are among the ones who are living testimony of the earliest contacts between Kenya and China. It was in 2002 that a team of distinguished Kenyan and Chinese researchers carried a DNA analysis on Mwamaka's 63-year-old mother and discovered that she has Chinese genetics. Soon afterwards,the Chinese government offered Mwamaka a scholarship to study Chinese traditional medicine in China. Kenyan and Chinese archeologists have been tracing evidence of ancient contacts in the Kenyan coast .They hope to find the the shipwreck to help unearth all artifacts symbolizing ancient cultural and trade ties.
One of the highlights of this year’s budget is a deliberate effort by the government of Kenya to enhance ease of doing business for foreign investors, especially from Africa. This is in line with the Jubilee administration’s economic diplomacy. One of Kenya’s targets is Africa’s largest economy, Nigeria. But just what can be done to get a share of Nigeria’s pie and what opportunities exist for Kenyans in Nigeria? That is the focus of today’s daring abroad with Alex Chamwada.

How good or effective is the plastic bag ban in Kenya? Is it well implemented? Doesn't it hurt some while enriching some?
