Rosemary is therefore excluded from being the mother of Mevies Imbaya who she brought up together with Melon believing they were twins despite striking physical differences.

A similar test on Angelina Omina who raised Sharon as her daughter in Nairobi since her birth in 1999, showed a mismatch of 13 out 23 loci with her.

A loci above 3 mismatches is considered a grounds for exclusion of paternity.

Melon and Mevies met on Facebook in April 2019 after allegedly being separated from their respective biological mothers at Kakamega Provincial General Hospital, now Kakamega Teaching and Referral Hospital.

Upon their delivery, the pair was placed in separate incubators and after one week, their mum was discharged and happily raised them not knowing one girl had been mistakenly switched with Angeline’s.
