Ugandans doubled the fun at the annual Kampala Twins Festival [Photos]


Ugandan capital Kampala was gripped by a double feeling of excitement over the weekend as hundreds of twins of all ages trooped to the annual Kampala Twins Festival.

Dressed in similar clothing and wearing similar hairstyles, identical and fraternal twins between the ages of 6 months and 86 years old graced the occasion organised by the Vision Group to celebrate the double blessing.

Some triplets were also in attendance together with parents and siblings.

The participants were treated to a music concert, fun games, feast, fashion show, raffle and a photo opportunity among others. The latter was grasped by Uganda’s oldest twins, 86-year-old Emirina Babirye and Christine Nakato, the organisers said.

Another older twin who was 107 years old spoke to the participants. She had lost her twin.

Also, 40-year-old Kato Naboth and Kakuru Moses, who are twins and corporals in the Ugandan army, joined the other twins to celebrate their day.

Below are some images of the event held on Sunday at the Kyadondo Rugby Club.
