Ory’s response

Ory Okolloh has a great response to my recent post about used clothing imported into Africa. She points out that selling used clothing has provided necessary income for many people, and that used clothing represented a way for her, as a young woman, to buy the clothing she wanted despite the economic difficulties middle-class Kenyans faced in the late eighties and early nineties. She closes by saying, “The point of my rambling is that there is another side to the story…” Well said, and a point well taken.
