The twin babies whose mother reportedly died of hunger a few days after delivering them have been moved to a new home.

Acting on a report by the Sunday Nation, Yatta district commissioner John Kinjo on Sunday sent a children's officer to the home in Kwa Ndeke Village, Makutano sub-location, Ikombe Division, to assess the situation. On arrival, the children's officer found the situation grim and informed his boss of his findings. It was then that a decision was made to take the children to an orphanage, where they will stay temporarily. The two-week-old twins Twili and Mbatha, together with the other two children Lucky Wambua, aged three, and Mbatha, seven, arrived at the Springs of Hope Children's Home around 8pm on Sunday. They were welcomed by the director of the home, Mrs Mary Musyoka. On Monday, the director of Children's Services in the Ministry of Home Affairs, Mr Ahmed Hussein, travelled from Nairobi to Machakos to personally assess the condition of the children. "This is, indeed, a very pathetic situation; it is a story that has touched the heart and soul of many caring people. Please do everything at your disposal to give these children some ray of hope in life," Mr Hussein said. The government will reunite the children with their families once the hunger situation improves, he added. In bad shape Mrs Musyoka said the twins were in bad shape when they arrived at the home while the two elder children appeared malnourished. "We have already put them on a nutritious diet and we hope things will be fine for them once they adapt," Mrs Musyoka said.
