Nairobi - Capital News reports that second hand clothes and shoes will be banned from Kenya should proposals contained in Sessional Paper Number 9 of 2012 go through, come January next year.
The Sessional Paper, which has already been approved by the Cabinet and now before Parliament, is meant to protect the textile and leather industries.
Industrialisation Permanent Secretary Karanja Kibicho says this is a move by government to create a market for local traders and manufacturers.
