The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) on Thursday stated that it will investigate the circumstances surrounding the Kakamega twin puzzle.

Through a statement seen by Ureport, the DCI suggested forensic investigation to settle the matter and urged the families involved to come forth and give more details about the story.

“The attention of the @DCI_Kenya has been drawn to the highly publicized story of the #Kakamega twin puzzle. We believe forensic investigation will establish if any criminal act was committed or any mitigating circumstances that may have led to the present status.

“We encourage and appeal to the families concerned to please report to #DCI office in Kakamega to facilitate investigations,” said the DCI.

Elsewhere, the Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI) on Wednesday said it will fund a DNA test to help the two identical girls, Melon Lutenyo and Sharon Mathias find out if they are blood sisters.

Richard Olukhakha and Rosemary Onyango, parents of Melon Lutenyo and Mevies Imbaya, who they have raised separately called on well-wishers to help them unravel the mystery.

“We want to find out if something went wrong somewhere, their similarities are evident,” said Olukhakha.

The two girls who are KCSE candidates backed their parents request for DNA to help them clear the matter as soon as possible so that they can focus on preparing for their national exams at the end of the year.

“We are appealing to any well-wisher out there to help us secure DNA test before we open school for the second term. We want to be at peace after knowing our identities,” said Sharon.
