Since the Kakamega twins have been reunited after their match awaited DNA test, the respective parents have said that they will live together as one big family.
The rituals will be conducted for the now-famous Kakamega twins who were separated at birth and reunited after 19 years. The rituals are meant to integrate the sisters into one family and further prevent a repeat of what happened in the twins’ lineage.
Idakho Council of Elders chairman Zacharia Shimechero spoke to the Star and stated that the culture dictates that Lutenyo’s hair must be shaved by her grandmother, her father or aunt.
The ceremony must also be conducted in Lukuyani sub-county, Kakamega county to welcome her home.
“In this case, we will treat the girl as a child who was born out of wedlock. The elders will have to administer the triplets a concoction of herbs to cleanse the family. This is done before Melon meets other children,” Shimechero said.
“If that is not done the triplets will stare at sudden death.”
Sharon was raised by Angela Omina, who resides in Kangemi.
“The girl’s ‘real father’ will also have to give Omina a cow to reward her for keeping her well,” Shimechero said.
Melon will also be given a new name – that of someone who has died in the family or village and was close to the family.
