Kenyans Dying to Know What Happened in the ‘Swapped' Twins' Case

The captivating story of the Kakamega 'twins' is on the list of most searched items on Google by Kenyans in the latest trends released by the search engine for the month of April. The two identical girls who suspect they were separated at birth in 1999 met on Facebook after their teachers and schoolmates told them how they resembled each other. The matter caught the attention of the Kenya Medical Research Institute, which expressed willingness to fund the DNA testing process.
