CONJOINED TWINS DIE


Conjoined twins Maria and Consolata Mwakikuti, who were joined at the abdomen, have died in a hospital in Tanzania.

The twins had been admitted to hospital due to a chronic heart condition. They had become minor celebrities in the east African nation where the media have closely followed their path through high school and arrival at university. They were born in 1996. The twins were abandoned by their mother after the death of their father, and later taken in by a Catholic mission.
