kidA Kenyan man is offering to sell his kidney in order to offset a bank loan.

32 year old Joseph Mwiti Kithinji has posted an advertisement on social media looking for someone who may be interested in the critical organ.

”I Joseph Mwiti Kithinji of ID No. 23735768 of Gaturi Sublocation Gaturi Location South Imenti constituency in Meru county; do hereby advertise to sell one of my kidneys.” the letter reads in part.

Mwiti explains that Equity bank issued him with a Sh350,000 loan which has become a major burden. He says that the bank auctioned his only cow as a result of defaulting.


Speaking to Nation on phone, Mwiti stated that he was not addressing the letter to anyone in particular, but just wanted it known that he is planning to sell that major organ.
