As modernity is sweeping over the world, cultural and traditional norms are not spared.

In the African Traditional Society, twins had a special ritual they had to go through when they were born but due modernity, the ritual is slowly dying.  Twins are no longer initiated but instead taken to church dedicated and prayed for.

Sarah Nalule who is a proud Nalongo says that despite the fact that her family values tradition so much, when she bore her twins, she did not do any ritual for them and they have grown up very well.

“I never took them for rituals and nothing happened. They were instead taken to church and my pastor prayed for them at baptism,” says Nalule.

Asked about what they love about each other, Nakato says she loves Babirye’s  skin and adores it so much because it is very smooth all the time and shiny.

“Babirye has the type of skin I love to have but God gave it to her alone and I think he had a reason why” says Nakato.

Like any other children, Nakato and Babirye do get miss understandings and when that happens, Babirye tends to beat up Nakato who instead abuses her.

Nakato and Babirye share English as their best subject, Juliana as their role model, dancing and singing for leisure, football as a hobby and they support Manchester United team but when it comes to future careers, Nakato wants to be a veterinary Doctor while Babirye wants to be a musician.
