A 14-year-old boy identified as Isaiah Wanjala from Gidea village in Kwanza Constituency, Trans Nzoia County of Kenya has revealed that he is very ready and willing to sell his kidney to fund his secondary school education.
The young boy who reportedly got admitted to Chewoiyet Boys High School after scoring 394 in 2019 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education examinations, has not been able to raise Sh50,000 (N179,000) required to join the national school based in West Pokot County.
Wanjala who is the 5th child in the family of 9 children, revealed that he is ready to sell one of his kidneys as long as it will raise enough money for him to take care of his high school and university education.
“My aged parents are not in a position to raise my school fees as well as provide the basic needs for my younger brothers and sister.”
Wanjala’s aged parents, Rose Andisi and Fred Wanyonyi who have tried dissuading their son from going ahead with his decision that has given them multiple sleepless night, appealed to kind-hearted people to help their son achieve his dream of becoming an engineer.
The Parents said;
“As a family, we are worried by his decision. We have tried to persuade him otherwise but he is adamant and determined to join his dream school.”
This is coming few days after the Kenyan government notified parents and guardians of the deadline for form 1 admission.
