It has long been argued by some that second-hand clothes being exported to Africa has had a negative effect on the continent's textile industry.

This argument recently came to a head when Rwandan President Paul Kagame pledged to stick with an East African plan to ban the import of second-hand clothes in spite of pressure from the US.

Mr Kagame said: "We are put in a situation where we have to choose - you choose to be a recipient of used clothes... or choose to grow our textile industries."

Rwanda is planning to ban the import of second-hand clothes by 2019 and has already put up tariffs.

The BBC's Reality Check team has looked into the issue and concluded that the imports of cheap second-hand clothes from the West have had an impact on local clothes manufacturers. But there are other factors involved too.
