|Conjoined Nakuru Twins Die at Kenyatta National Hospital|
It is supposed to be a mother’s day weekend yet one woman is at loss in trying to figure out the death omen that visited her this Saturday morning. Kenyatta National Hospital Nairobi has confirmed that the conjoined twins born in Nakuru died this Saturday Morning.
Earlier, Doctors and specialists had indicated that the twins shared body organs and therefore could not be surgically separated in any way. The y both shared sexual organs, liver, kidneys, heart, bladder, kidneys and rib cage. They also had three hands and two separate heads and two legs.
Kenyatta National Hospital Chief Executive Officer; Richard Lesiyampe said that doctors worked hard and explored all avenues in trying to save the lives of the two twins, but all was in vain.
The Mother to the twins; Evelyn Omodho had gone to Rift Valley General Hospital for normal child delivery: hoping that one of her twins would be a female and the other male. Evelyn who is a small business woman at Ole Nguroine (in Rift Valley) was however shocked to have delivered conjoined twins. After delivery, she was immediately referred to Kenyatta National Hospital for further follow up.
‘I want to sincerely thank all the Doctors and Specialists who were involved for tirelessly working in trying to save the life of my little angels. They honestly did their best, but God’s will prevailed. These Doctors are very friendly. I have never seen such doctors who are always ready to help. May the Almighty God reward them. May they live long to serve others in our beloved country’…….Evelyn Omodho (The Late Twin’s Mother).
‘We thank them for they did their best. Other Doctors and nurses should emulate them’..Gilbert Tum (The Late Twin’s Father).
Decision Times Kenya wishes the family, friends and relatives of the twin’s strength and courage as they go through this tormenting moment. Surely, God has a reason for letting things happen. We may never understand his intention, but we’ve got to trust in his will. Poleni sana and be strong.
