The Side Eye: Zimbabwe Bans Second-Hand Underwear

The Zimbabwean government has recently banned “second-hand undergarments of any type, form or description – whether purchased, donated or procured in any other manner.” Finance Minister Tendai Biti even added: "If you are a husband and you see your wife buying underwear from the flea market, you have failed.” The bigger failure seems to be the necessity out of which folks in Zimbabwe have to buy second-hand knickers. It's likely that sh*t's not a choice.
