• KNH has held an interactive QnA with people about not selling their kidneys.

• The rising cost of living has something to do with it.

Kenyatta National Hospital has warned Kenyans about selling their Kidney. In a viral message on Twitter, KNH told

"'How much for my kidney?' Is our most inboxed question. Please note that organ sale is strictly prohibited and illegal. You can only donate out of free will."

The idea of making quick cash by selling a body part has been on the lips of Kenyans online, who have been asking KNH to tell them how much they can possibly sell a kidney for?

The hospital hasn't divulged how much the body part costs. Obviously, this might be deemed irresponsible and see Kenyans flocking to illegal markets.

A tongue-in-cheek Zimbabwean blog post suggested the trade was happening at a shopping centre in the capital, Harare.
