The Kakamega girls are biological sisters, DNA results confirm!

The long waited DNA results for DNA tests conducted on three Kakamega girls believed to have been switched at birth are finally out.

According to the DNA results, Sharon Mitekwa and Melon Lutenyo, the girls from Kakamega are biological sisters!

The report from Lancet Kenya which was released on Saturday revealed that they share identical DNA profiles, with the 23 allelic loci tested showing 100% match, which is consisted with the two being biological twins.

This means Rosemary Onyango is the biological mother of Sharon and Melon.

DNA samples from four others: Mevis Imbaya, Rosemary Khaveleli Onyango, Angeline Omina Matias, and Wilson Lutah Maruti were used during the test.

Sharon lives in Nairobi with Angeline Onyango who was originally deemed to be her mother while Melon resides in Kakamega with her biological mum Rosemary Onyango.

The twins were separated at birth in 1999 at Kakamega County Referral Hospital.

The other girl, Melvis, is the biological daughter of the Kangemi mother Angeline Omina Matias.
