Buying or selling organs in Malaysia is illegal, but politician Wan Ahmad Fayshal insisted that some people are desperate and resort to selling kidneys as they’re in dire need of money since KWSP withdrawal is not allowed.

Despite his recent KWSP & kidney remark, Wan Ahmad said that he is in no way condoning the illegal act. To him, he was just trying to prove a point about desperation.

“I was merely highlighting the desperation of those who are really affected and need the retirement funds.”

Following his remark, the Ministry of Health (KKM) released a statement and said that any reports about illegal transactions involving organs should be taken seriously. Are the claims about people resorting to selling kidneys true? Wan said that it is entirely up to the authorities to investigate and find out if they really need another round of KWSP withdrawal.

“I saw those on Facebook posts”

As for the “selling kidneys” remark, no one reached out to Wan personally and told him about it. He revealed that it was based on posts in Facebook groups where some Malaysians are crying for another round of KWSP withdrawal.

“I’m not pinpointing anyone specifcially, but my point was people are desperate,” Wan explained.

He also said those who accused him of supporting the illegal act of selling kidneys are merely politicising the matter.

Will Wan apologise for the matter? He said that he will issue a statement and apologise only if he’s misunderstood. As of now, he stands by his statement.

‘People are desperate. They might resort to illegal activities just to pay off their debts if another round of KWSP withdrawal is not allowed.”

Dr. Rafidah Abdullah recently responded to his statement via a Twitter post and criticise him for not thinking before saying something. She has also highlighted that there is no such thing as selling or buying organs in Malaysia.

Fellow Malaysians, do you think another round of KWSP withdrawal should be allowed? Will it help in the long run?
