A Kenyan vendor waiting for customers sells second-hand clothes (locally known as mitumba) at the Gikomba open-air market on June 25, 2012, in Nairobi. Local dealers welcomed Kenya's Finance minister Njeru Githai's move to lower import duty on " Mitumba" in this year's budget read two weeks ago. However, trade experts say the reduction on import duty, will put over 270,000 jobs in the cotton industry at risk and lives of farmers as well.
