    Gladys Bulinya at home with five of her six sets of twins
    Most women would struggle to cope with six sets of twins but for Gladys Bulinya it is even more difficult - as many people in her part of Kenya think twins are cursed.

    Her relatives will have nothing to do with her, and her husband left her, fearing she was jinxed, after the sixth pair of twins arrived last year

    So the 35-year-old lives alone with 10 of her 12 children in a one-roomed grass-thatched house, a few miles from the shore of Lake Victoria.

    Sitting outside her small home in the village of Nzoia, she recites the birthdays of her children with ease.

    "John and James were born in 1993," she starts, shading her eyes from the sun's rays.
    She explains that she got pregnant at high school - but her boyfriend was too young tomarry her

    • 2003: Mercy and Faith
    • 2005: Carren and Ivy

    Amebarikiwe mtu yule amtegemeaye bwana mungu na amelaaniwa yule amtegemeaye mwanadamu. Hao wanaofikiri ni laana wao ndio wamelaaniwa na huyu mama amebarikiwa.wangapi wanahangaika kutafuta hawawapati hata wa dawa.Pole sana kwa mzigo wa kuwalea lakini hongera sana kwa kujaliwa uzazi
