Renowned TV anchor Swaleh Mdoe wants to sell his Kidney

The outspoken TV anchor says he needs to do it to sort out financial issues

Swaleh Mdoe, one of the longest-serving TV anchors in Kenya wants to sell his kidney.

In an article published in The Pulse on Friday, February 16, Swaleh is willing to sell one of his kidneys in order to sort out some financial issues.

“I would even be placing a newspaper advert if that is what it took to get a worthy client,” said Swaleh as quoted in The Pulse.

He went on to add that he decided to sell one of his kidneys after consulting his doctor and that he had ‘pressing’ financial problems that could only be sorted at the moment if he sold his kidney.

He even shared his mobile number (0722733130) and emphasized on the urgency of the matter.

Swaleh also said that he didn’t want to bother people and could live on one Kidney.

Kenyans took no chances on social media, blasting the renowned anchor – others even saying that he is broke.

Here is a sample of the responses on Twitter after Swaleh’s declaration:

Other than the ridicule & demonstration of how deep in economic crisis we may be, the Swaleh Mdoe story is a dangerous sign that the selfless practice of organ donation may result in commodification.
