A set of conjoined twins born to a 29-year-old woman last Sunday have died hours after they were put on life support .
The twins delivered at Naggalama Hospital in Mukono district had to be transferred to Mulago Hospital in Kampala for specialized treatment.
By the time of admission at Mulago hospital, the female Siamese twins had been experiencing difficulty in breathing.
Their father, Zayida Mugoya, told The New Vision on phone today that the babies died at around 7.30pm on Monday at Mulago’s Special Care Unit.
Dr. Simon Otim, a gynaecologist, had earlier said the twins had some complications since they were born prematurely.
Conjoined twins are a rare occurrence and are said to occur once in every 200,000 live births.
May their souls rest in eternal peace.
