21-year-old conjoined twins die of heart-related issues


Conjoined twins, Maria and Consolata Mwakikuti, have died after suffering respiratory complications aged 21.

The two ladies, who were born conjoined from the navel below, were rushed to hospital six months ago due to heart-related issues.


They shared organs, including their liver and lungs, though they had two separate hearts. On Saturday, the pair died in hospital in Tanzania after failing to recover.

Tanzanian President, John Magufuli, said on social media that he was ‘saddened’ by their deaths.


He added that Consolata and Maria had ‘dreamed of serving the nation.’ The ladies were raised by Catholic charity Maria Consolata, who adopted and named them after their parents, who died when they were young.


Paying tribute to the twins online, dozens branded the ladies – who never wanted to be separated – ‘determined and motivated’.

A pressure group, African Watchmen, said: “Our condolences to the people of Tanzania and the Mwakikuti family on the death of their beloved conjoined twins, Maria and Consolata.


“They had the determination and motivation to succeed despite challenges. Rest in peace.”
