DNA results for Kakamega twins who were separated at birth and reunited several years later through Facebook are out.

The test which was conducted by Lancet Pathologist established that Sharon Mathias and Melon Lutenyo are twins.

The tests further confirmed that their mother is Rosemary Khaveveli Onyango.

A report released on Saturday by Lancet Kenya read that “They (Sharon and Melon) share identical DNA profiles, with the 23 allelic loci tested show 100% perfect match, which is consistent with the two being biologically twins”.

The tests further confirmed that Mevis and Melon grew up thinking that they are sisters, they are not biologically related.

DNA samples from Mevis Imbaya, Rosemary Khaveleli Onyango, Angeline Omina Matias and Wilson Lutah Maruti were used to bring the case that attracted the attention of the DCI to a logical conclusion.

The story of the three ladies caught up in the saga; Melon, Sharon, and Melvis dates back to nineteen years ago when they were born in the same hospital and could have been separated at birth.

Their mothers Rosemary Khaveveli and Angelina Omina gave birth two days apart with the latter being given two girls who she named Melvis and Melon.

Angelina named her baby Sharon.

Melvis and Melon were raised together while Sharon was raised separately until nineteen years later when she reunited with her twin sister through Facebook.

Prior to receiving the DNA results, the three vowed not to let it split them and stated that they would continue living as sisters.

They also stated that they would regard both Rosemary and Angelina as their parents.
