Despite feeding well on breast milk, the twins had been admitted at the hospital’s Special Care Unit on Ward 5B since last week.

Weighing a paltry 4.2 kilogrammes, the twins were suffering from a strange sickness.

Born prematurely at seven months to Agnes Anyait, 19, and Augustine Ojangole, 23, of Ngora district at Kumi hospital, the female twins were conjoined at the chest and abdomen to the umbilical cord.

They were to be separated after clocking nine months, according to Kimosho.

A team of doctors at Mulago partnered with experts at a Cairo hospital thus separating siamese twins Trevor and Timothy born in June last year in western district of Kabale.

The development underlines the need to equip Mulago with hi-tech apparatus to cater for such emergencies.
