Identical Twins Swapped At Birth Reunites After A Clash On Facebook

It was confirmed by a Kenya Hospital that two Kakamega girls: Sharon Mathias and Melon Lutenyo, are twins. 

While Sharon was surfing the net, she came across Melon's profile, and sent her a Facebook friend request. As soon as she accepted the request, they were at loggerheads over the authenticity of the other’s online profile. And, were suspicious of their striking resemblance. They decided to cut off their communication after the online altercation. 

They finally met in December 2018 at a bus stop in Kakamega town.

The meeting was prompted by incessant mentioning of their striking resemblance by their teachers and schoolmates. Soon, their communication grew to the extent they introduced each other to their parents.

In April 2019, both families resorted to solve the mystery by seeking professional help. Lancet Kenya then offered to carry out a DNA test at a subsidised cost. The result eventually confirmed that they are indeed twins.

Their mother, Ms Onyango, is said to have gone to Kakamega Hospital while pregnant on August 15th, 1999. She expected to deliver triplets but regaining her consciousness after delivery through a caesarean section, was informed she had given birth to twins.

The twins were placed in an incubator for a week due to low birth weight. She said she had been in doubt since her twins: Melon and Melvin did not turn out identical.

Ms Omina, who has been confirmed not to be Sharon’s biological mother, said she gave birth on August 14th, 1999, a day before Ms Onyango had her delivery.

However, the Director of Criminal Investigations office will pursue the case of the identical twins switched at birth, undermining the fact that the family said they will not file a charge against the hospital.

In the mix up, Mevies Imbaya was given to Onyango as a fraternal twin to Melon, but it has been confirmed now that she is the biological daughter of Omina, who brought up Sharon.
