VIDEO: Tanzania’s Siamese Twins Refuse To Get Separated, Wish To Marry One Husband
Here is a story of the Siamese twins who share everything, including household chores and dreams, and hope to be married to the same husband when they eventually decide to settle down for marriage. They are also opposed to the idea of surgically seperating them.
In an interview with the BBC, they share their dreams for the future.
Tanzanian conjoined twins Maria and Consolata Mwakikuti, currently studying in Iringa Udzungwa in Tanzania’s south-west region, are in their last year at secondary school.
The mother of the 19-year-olds died after giving birth, their father has also passed away, and they were raised by a Catholic church charity, Maria Consolata, which adopted them and gave them their names.
The BBC’s Leonard Mubali travelled to meet them, joining them for a class session and says they were getting on well with their classmates and taking an active part in the lessons.
He says Consolata was more talkative and engaged than her sister.
They told our reporter that they want to become teachers and hope to get married to one husband in the future.
Headmaster Edward Fue said he had been shocked when he met the young women last year saying he did not know how to help them because the school did not have special facilities.
The school, with the aid of the local government, have now built a special room for them to rest. They also hired a driver to take them to where they live.
