Man Arrested for Smuggling 100 Pounds of used G-strings into Zimbabwe




A man in Zimbabwe has been arrested for smuggling 100 pounds of second-hand G-strings, thongs, and regular pants into the country.

RadarNG reports that the man was apprehended at the Sango Border Post by the Zimbabwean Revenue Authority (Zimra).

It is against the law in the country to import used garments, whether used or donated, as the country wants to protect its domestic textile industry, and guard against the health risks associated with the use of second-hand underwear.

However, because of the current economic crisis many people are being forced to purchase used clothing, including undergarments, which are often donated by developed countries.

      My dear, it is not the less privilege that buys second handed clothes. For the fact it lasts longer than new ones, makes even the privilege to wear second handed cloths. some second handed clothes are far expensive than new ones. I have seen second handed pants, they are very clean (Although i don’t patronise it, cos it is too private by me). I patronize bras and girdles , coz it is standard yet i am not less priviledge. Or better still defined a less priviledge. Even Less priviledge can not afford to buy bra for N700 or shoes for 4,500 – 7,000. Or hand bags for 2500 – 5000, girdles 1200 – 3000, so what are we talking about?

    It’s not about forming, clothes can be carriers of diseases (contact dermatitis), lice, and other odd things talkless of now wearing used pant, what kinda poverty mentality would make u buy and wear a used pant, or do u think the white man’s arse is cleaner,tufia!, I’ve seen ppl selln used pants, boxers wt suspicious looking yellow stains, I was like wtf, how much is a pant that you can’t buy is N150, or N200 too expensive, Ive seen some Nigerians crowding some dirty looking things at a container that looked like they whr picked from a junkyard, sewing machines etc coz of the idea that abroad tns r d best and they don’t even come cheap sef.
