Kenya has banned the importation of second-hand clothes as a way of limiting the spread of coronavirus.
Importation of used clothes is suspended with immediate effect to safeguard the health of Kenyans and promote local textiles,”
Kenya’s Daily Nation newspaper quoted Trade Minister Betty Maina as saying.
Many people buy the second-hand clothes sent from Europe, North America and China, which they prefer because they are more affordable than new products.
On Wednesday, Ms Maina met second-hand clothes dealers and encouraged them to source goods from local manufacturers.
But not everyone is happy with the suspension. aGEXLlq;��&�/�
