A 27-year-old former aspirant for Kenyan Member of County Assembly (MCA) seat, due to economic conditions and chronic poverty has decided to put up one of his testicles(balls) for sale for Sh500,000 an approcimate of 1,490,000 Naira.
The man, Ian-Harriel Kowiti, who hails from Uriri Constituency in Migori County, says he’s tired of living in squalor and poverty, and has opted to raise cash by selling one of his testicles.
Kowiti, who tried his hands in politics in the last General Election as an independent candidate, is also willing to part with one of his kidneys for Sh1.5 million (5,354,800 Naira) for ‘a local client,’ and three times that amount for ‘client’ based outside the country.
In an interview with a curious Nairobian, kowiti stated
“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!” Kowiti said.
Kowiti says that he’s selling his testicles to better his life. However, he explains that money is not the motivation for selling his kidney.
“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.
Kowiti added that, “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.”
Though a man can still lead a healthy sex life with one testicle, medics have dismissed the idea of harvesting testicles.
