A week after the story was out, Ben Otieno, a Homa Bay County resident (not his real name), acknowledged in an exclusive interview with TUKO.co.ke that he had sold his kidneys in 2023 in order to get money.

The broker who connected him to the kidney purchasers advised him not to discuss the business with anyone for fear of undefined repercussions, so he sought anonymity.

“Through a local middleman I consulted, they told me they would offer me KSh 500,000. I had seen one of my friends with a new motorbike and asked him how he acquired it and that was when he linked be to the broker,” recounted the 35-year-old, who regrets his move.

Otieno claims that his friend told him he sold one of his kidneys to raise money to grow his boda boda company. Otieno rode a boda boda as well.

Otieno was scheduled to see a clinic in Eldoret after his acquaintance connected him to the middleman in the organ harvesting syndicate and they agreed on the sum Otieno would receive for his kidney.

Otieno told TUKO.co.ke that he was together with two other young men when he visited the clinic for an assessment before the kidney removal.

“We went to a private hospital in Eldoret three days after I, together with the two others interested in selling their kidneys, concluded negotiating with the broker,” said Otieno.

This was in early 2023, according to Otieno. “He took me and the two others for tests and to meet the receiver of the kidney whom I talked to, and we agreed,” said Otieno, adding that he sympathised with the receiver who seemingly had suffered kidney problems for a long time and both kidneys were affected then.
