A 14-year-old boy has shocked many after he revealed that he plans to sell one of his kidney so as to pay his school fees.
The young lad, Isaiah Wanjala – who is the fifth child in the family with nine children, from Gidea village in Kwanza Constituency, Trans Nzoia County of Kenya, got admitted to Chewoiyet Boys High School after scoring 394 in 2019 Kenya Certificate of Primary Education examinations, but has been unable to raise Sh50,000 required to join the national school based in West Pokot County.
Isaiah Wanjala stated that he is ready to sell one of his kidneys as long as it will raise enough money to take care of his high school and university education. He said;
“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.”
The boy’s parents, Rose Andisi and Fred Wanyonyi have tried dissuading their son from going ahead with the decision and appealed to good-hearted individuals to help their son achieve his dream of becoming an engineer.
This is coming after the Kenyan government notified parents and guardians of the deadline for form one admission.
