Kakamega separated twins to repeat form 3

The famous Kakamega twins have opted to repeat form three so as to focus more on their studies.

The twins, Sharon Mitekwa and Melon Lutenyo, also said they will not sue Kakamega County Referral Hospital where they were separated at birth in 1999.

Speaking to the press on Monday, the twins, who were accompanied by their parents said they have forgiven the staff at Kakamega hospital who were involved in their separation.

“We thank everyone who has helped us through this journey but we will not be seeking any compensation from the hospital,” said Melon.

The twins also said they hope they will be allowed to live together.

A DNA test was done by Lancet Kenya, who revealed the two girls were biological twins.

The two girls discovered each other on Facebook after seeing pictures resembling them that were not posted by them.
