The East African nation is the latest country to make a formal commitment to phase out single-use non-biodegradable plastics, which have been identified by the United Nations as one of the world's biggest environmental challenges. Of the 9 billion tonnes of plastic the world has produced, only 9 percent has been recycled, according to U.N. estimates.

2016 Fellow, renowned Kenyan award-winning film producer and Spielworks Media CEO, Dorothy Ghettuba, has been appointed by Global streaming giant, Netflix, as Manager for International Originals. 
The move comes after Netflix announced in 2018 that it would commission original shows from Africa by 2019. This move was intended to  increase demand for the platform among viewers from the region and eventually reduce the cost of access. “Telling our African stories. Onwards and Upwards,” said Ms Ghettuba in an Instagram post announcing her appointment. Dorothy launched Spielworks Media, a Nairobi-based African production company, in 2009 and wished to one day, turn the company into an African version of the American motion picture studio, Universal Pictures.
