Speaking the mind of an average American who donated their clothes, Rory said the idea is that it gets to poor kids in Africa but they are shipped and then sold.
Thrift traders also have it tough
In a video, Rory said most times, they don’t get to the children they were intended for. He visited a Kenay market where the clothes, popularly known as thrift wear, are sold and identified some Canadian and US items of clothing.
Rory lamented that thrift traders also have a tough business selling the clothes and interviewed a trader to back up his claim.
Nigerian Customs’ announcement to ban thrift clothes had sparked outrage from Nigerians.

Rory Gallagher’s video generates buzz
“I’m ok with them selling my donations! just like I’m ok with people taking cans out of my recycling bin.”
“I once bought a jacket in mutumba after a few days i saw a girl wearing in a movie wearing exactly the same.”
“Just like goodwill instead of donating them they’re selling it to make money of free clothes.”
“Please don’t stop,even though they are sold, we actually buy them really cheap compared to the store clothing, which still helps the poor.”
“It seems good to me, it creates a small business In a foreign country.”
“So I have been buying donation clothes that’s meant for me from my American brothers and sisters ??”
Gikonyo mark said:
“Its just that we buy our clothes from the European countries and collect them at Gikomba.”

According to Okriks, the word “okrika” which is used for second-hand wear in Nigeria came from a town by the same name, a place people believe the clothes came through into the country.
