Kenya: KOT React After Citizen TV Anchor Swaleh Mdoe Admits He's Broke

Citizen TV Swahili anchor Swaleh Mdoe is reportedly in the financial red and is willing to sell one of his kidneys to bail himself out.

Mdoe's tribulations understandably have left several of his fans in speculation mode on social media.

Mdoe who made his name for his elegant appearance and striking command of the Swahili language while anchoring news, is one of the most respected and consistent anchors in Kenya's media industry.

He holds a commanding following in the market and a friendship cycle consisting of the who is who in Kenya's world of entertainment and politics.

Here are some of the reactions from Kenyans on Twitter.

If Swaleh Mdoe who has been working for the last 20years decides to put his kidney up for sale sasa sisi wenye we have been jobless for years si tutauza kila kitu tuu baki na heart tuu. I assume April's fools day has come early

We must not allow Swaleh Mdoe to sell his kidney. Retweet if you're willing to help if he organizes a fundraiser.

If Swaleh Mdoe is hawking a kidney to sort out his financial problems, one can only imagine what female presenters sell in such situations.
