Drama ensued on Friday after the mother of one girl raised with one of the identical Kakamega twins forcefully took away her daughter.

At the time, relatives of the twins who have hit headlines for months now were preparing to meet Kakamega County Governor Wycliffe Oparanya.

The incident sparked a disagreement with a relative of the twins, Shem Abati, being roughed up after he attempted to stop Mrs Omina from separating her daughter from the girls.

Mrs Omina, who is now opposed to the girls staying together, accuses relatives of the twins of forcing her daughter to continue living with Rosemary Onyango, the mother of the twins at their home in Fufural in Likuyani Sub-County.

In his defence, Abuti claims that by Mrs Omina taking her daughter she was acting contrary to an earlier agreement – not to separate the girls.
