When they left the courtroom, both sides were in tears.
While the courtâs decision disappointed the couple, their adopted children were shedding tears of joy following a favourable ruling.
The court ordered the man and the wife to make peace with the twins and in addition give them five acres of land each.
While it is the wish of everyone to be born and brought up in a happy family with loving parents who are always there in the time of need, this was not the case for Samuel Ngure and Mary Wambaire.
For the twins from Ol-Kalou, Nyandarua, theirs is a case of being dumped in hospital by their biological parents only to be rejected by their foster parents.
The twins were born in Nairobi in 1991 and dumped at Pumwani Maternity Hospital by their mother. Wahiu and his wife later adopted the twins after the High Court granted them orders to do so.Â Ever since their adoption, the twins have been living happily until recently when trouble started.
Turn of events
And in a rare turn of events, the foster parents filed a case in Nyahururu Law Courts seeking to disown and eject the twins from their home accusing them of being unruly.
In the case, the parents had accused Ngure of stealing various items from their home and selling them to neighbours while his twin sister had been accused of abusing her foster mother telling her she was not her biological mother.
