The First Conjoined Twins Has Finally Grown, See Their Latest Photos


On the 5th of July, 2021, the announcement of two more sets of identical twins was announced in Ghana. It was heartbreaking since GHS3 million had to be raised to pay for the children's separation operation. In the end, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo stepped in and paid for the health care of the Siamese twins as well as the health minister's expenses. Her mother was overjoyed when Nana Aba Anamoah informed her of the good news.

The new Siamese twins had their heads linked, whereas the original Siamese twins had their bellies joined. In Somanya, East, the first set of identical twins were born in 1999. It was decided to call them Lydia and Linda Awui. Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings, the Fourth Republic's first president, reportedly provided the money needed for the procedure.

Three months after their birth, the Korlebu Teaching Hospital separated the identical twins. The image below shows what might have happened if they hadn't been separated.

As children, they visited His Excellency Jerry John Rawlings to get money to fund their separation. There's no way the President Nana Akufo-Addo paid for the new Siamese twins by accident. President Obama and President Obama help Ghanaian Siamese twins for the first time in history.

The twins are now in the state shown in the photo above. Former President Jerry John Rawlings provided the funding for the separation of these adorable twins.
