Kidney transplant sale. Conceptual computer artwork of a kidney on British Pound (GBP) notes. This represents selling transplant organs. Because people have two kidneys, and can survive with just one, the other kidney may be sold for profit. The kidney is used to replace a diseased kidney in another person. Such trading of kidneys is considered unethical and it is illegal in many countries, although such trading has been reported.

There has been an increase in the number of people in Kenya that are willing to offer their kidneys for sale, report says.

The revelations was made by one of the country’s top hospitals, Kenyatta National Hospital through a Facebook post.

The hospital said the most asked question through the inbox of their Facebook page has been, “How much for my kidney?”

However, the hospital has advised the general public that selling of Kidneys is illegal but one would donate at his/her will if needed.

“Please note that organ sale is strictly prohibited and illegal. You can only donate out of free will,” it said, “said the hospital.

The rising cost of living has been attributed as one factor that is forcing people to take such desperate measures for money.
