– Sharon and Melon were reportedly separated at birth in 1999 at Kakamega General Hospital
– Sharon stays in Nairobi with her mother while her alleged twin is in Kakamega with her parents
– A DNA test has been conducted and is expected out between 30 and 60 days
– The two women, Rosemary and Angeline separated with their husbands
– Angeline hinted she could relocate to Kakamega and stay as co-wives
It has now emerged that the two women in the Kakamega twins’ puzzle separated from their husbands and have both remained single all through.
Angeline Omina who stays in Nairobi with one of the girls, Sharon, said she is ready to relocate to Kakamega county and live as co-wife with the other mother, Rosemary Onyango.
“I am a parent who has brought her up and I will continue to provide for her and the three are like my children. If the results prove otherwise, we’ll talk as parents and bring our children up together… It is a possibility we can live as co-wives in Kakamega,” she told KTN on Friday, April 19.
Rosemary has been raising Melon alongside Mavies as twin sisters but believes Sharon is indeed her twin daughter who was separated from her upon birth at Kakamega General Hospital in 1999.
“Our husbands no longer come home. It is now 10 years for me since I separated from my husband and I do not think I will ask him to take me back but they are free to visit whenever they want,” added Rosemary.
A DNA test which is expected out between 30 and 60 days to unriddle the puzzle was conducted in Pathologists Lancet Kenya laboratories on Friday, April 19.
At least seven family members were involved.
According to counselor Valentine Wairimu, there could be three possible outcomes of the exercise.
These include the girls (Melon and Mavies) could have been born together but do not look alike.
Wairiu further pointed out the teenagers could be triplets or the two families may be sharing ancestral roots.
