They say money makes the world go round, and for this man and many others, it truly is right. A 27 year old Kenyan, Ian-Harriel, has put up one of his testicles for sale to raise money. The former political aspirant has set a Sh500,000 (N1.8Million) asking price for his organ.
Ian-Harriel says he is tired of living in poverty and wants to raise cash by selling to potential customers; local or foreign.
According to him, he is always willing to part ways with his kidney if the right buyer comes. He has set an asking price of Sh1.5m for local clients and Sh4.5m higher price for foreign clients; who would also cover the cost of operation and travelling.
In his own words;
“What is the need of having two of them (testicles) dangling between my legs if I can still do the job perfectly with just one?
Imagine that there is someone out there who can’t have a child for one reason or another. I just want to share what I have, for a little profit of course! I’m tired of being broke, yet I don’t need two testicles!
A doctor friend confirmed to me that you can lead a healthy and fulfilling life with just one kidney. It pains me that there is someone out there who is suffering because of kidney failure and has to spend so much money on dialysis. I have two functioning kidneys, and I consider it the right thing to do to give out one,” he explained.
I wouldn’t mind donating my kidney, it’s only that I am now financially constrained and wouldn’t mind some cash in exchange for the organ. If I were to donate my kidney, the interested party would have to cater for the cost of surgery and my travel expenses, that is if the operation has to take place outside the country.”
He said this during an interview with the Nairobian.
