Kenyan siamese twins born three years ago have finally left hospital.
They spent their first night in Meru on Thursday, June 15 and were taken home in an ambulance.
Blessing Kathure and Favour Karimi will now be living with their parents in rural Meru after almost three years in hospital.
The twins were admitted to Kenyatta National Hospital Specialised Surgical Paediatric Ward on September 5, 2014 .
Their mum, Caroline Mukiri who is without a job is confident that her babies will have a bright future in Meru.
It was the second time they left the hospital having spent the Valentine’s day at the Animal Orphanage.
They were conjoined at the sacral region of the abdomen and the 23-hour operation took 60 doctors to pull off.
The team included pediatric surgeons, neurosurgeons, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, anesthetists and nursing teams.
It was the first ever successful surgery of its nature to ever be done successfully in Kenya.
