  • Famous Kakamega twins who have been in the limelight for their switched-at-birth story have added a new narrative to their series of twists and turns.

    The three girls, Melon Lutenyo, her twin Sharon Mathias and their 'sister' Melvis Imbaya, who were in different schools, opted to go back to form three, because the turn of events may have negatively affected their performance.

    The girls, who were set to resume their respective schools on Monday staged new demands and asked to be enrolled at the same school.

    Melvis' father, Wilson Imbaya, heeded to these demands but his attempt to enroll them at Kongoni Girls Secondary School flopped after the headteacher turned them away, People Daily reports.

    The principal did so on grounds that the trio, who had been accompanied by their mothers Angeline Omino and Rosemary Onyango, would distract the rest of the students.

    Their father, however, is reported to be displeased by the trio's behavior claiming that they are holding the parents at ransom and turning the situation into a circus.

    “This is a circus. They want to herd us like sheep. We were supposed to take them back to their respective schools on Monday but they came up with that weird demand that they want to be in one school so I urged them to proceed,” complained Luttah.

    This comes after Mevis's father, Luttah, earlier spoke to journalists confirming that the families had met and agreed to let the girls live together to avoid confusing them - which was what they wanted from the onset.

    Previously, Angeline Omina, the biological mother of Mevis, who was brought up with one of the twins, forcefully took her daughter in what was described as a dramatic scene.

    “As parents of the girls, we would like to see our children live together and continue with their studies uninterrupted. We want the girls to be together because that is their wish,” he conveyed.
