An advocacy group on tobacco control has asked the government not to issue license for smoke free cigarettes which are set be introduced in the country. Kenya Tobacco Control Alliance (KETCA) says there is no enough evidence to the claim that smoke free cigarettes are less harmful compared to actual cigarette sticks. Smoke free cigarettes are not consumed by puffing in smoke from burning tobacco. Instead, they can be ingested. Ideally, they are not supposed to contain tobacco, as one of the ways to encourage individuals to quit, but they usually come as an alternative to smoking which has more side effects.
