Following the release of DNA results for Kakamega twins Sharon Mathius and Melon Lutenyo, the teenagers have issued a statement on their fate in this years Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) examination.

The trio including Mevies Imbaya the third girl, now say they will not be sitting for KCSE exams that they had registered for, opting to repeat.

“We have decided to go back to Form Three as this saga has wasted us in terms of our education,” disclosed Melvis.

The decision follows a high-end meeting convened in Hurlingham, Nairobi on Monday. In the meeting, the two families also held in-depth talks that are envisaged to direct their next action in the separation saga.

The girls were supposed to sit for KCSE on November but their search for truth has kept them off their academic works for months.

Sharon was a form four candidate at Shikoti Girls High school in Kakamega, Melon at Kongoni School in Kakamega, while Melvis was to sit her KCSE at a school in Cherengany, Trans Nzoia county.

Parents of the trio are now calling on well-wishers seeking to offer support to the three girls’ education to knock on their doors.

“I love my children very much and I thank God for them. The only wish I have is to find a well-wisher who will support their education,” stated Rosemary Onyango, the biological mother to Sharon and Melon.

The DNA results released on Sunday brought to light the case of the trio for their mission to search for truth.

Sharon, raised in Nairobi, was Melon identical twin at birth but was switched and replaced with Melvis during birth who has been living with Melon as fraternal twins.
