They are all very different
It is extremely rare for there to be ninety twins. Having too many babies at once is often associated with medical complications, which means that some babies don’t survive the entire pregnancy. As far as is known, no son ever survived. Fortunately, Sissy’s nine children are in good health. The woman even in the Guinness Book of Records with nine of her sons.
The mother lives with the children in a private apartment in the clinic where the children were also born. “There are nurses here who help my wife take care of the children,” Arby says. The clinic also created a children’s menu outlining what they should eat each day.
The two boys are called: Mohammed VI, Omar, Al-Hajj, Bah, and the girls: Qadiya, Fatuma, Hawa, Adama, Omo. “Each of them has his own personality,” says the father. “Some are quiet, some make more noise and cry a lot. Some want to be picked up all the time, some don’t. Yes, they are all very different, which is very normal.”
The children have not yet gone to Mali, but they are very popular in the country. “Everyone really wants to see the children with their own eyes,” says the father. The father is grateful for the help they receive from the Mali government. “The Malian state did its best to take care of the nine children and their mother and treat them. It is not easy, but it is beautiful and a comforting thing,” Arby said.
