Second hand cloths sellers in Nyanza district claim its scarcity puts them into bankrupt

They say that this puts them into trouble with their respective banks as they took loans from them for starting businesses.

The Rwandan government has recently taken a firm decision to ban the importation of the second hand clothes as to enable the national clothes making industry to grow and prosper.

It increased taxes on them as to discourage traders from importing the second hand clothes.

This increase has reduced the amount of the second hand clothes importation thus the shortage that came out from this governmental decision.

The Mayor of Nyanza district Erasme Ntazinda reacted on this issue saying that the market is governed by that law whereby some join it while others look for other professions.

He, however, informed that district administration plans to establish other factories in the district that will produce more clothes and provide locals with jobs.

These factories will be processing minerals and clay
