Isabukuru Family, one of the 20 groups of mountain gorillas gazetted for research and tourism in Volcanoes National Park, welcomed a rare gift of twins born to Isaro yesterday.

According to Belise Kariza, the Chief Tourism Officer at Rwanda Development Board, the birth of the twins is great news to the tourism sector, because it is so rare.

“We are extremely happy to report the birth of twins that occurred today. The birth of twins is very rare. Only 4 such births have been recorded in the last 12 years. The first set of twins was born in 2004, when Nyabitondore gave birth to twins Impano and Byishimo in the Susa family,” Kariza said during an interview yesterday.

According to her, the twins were named by President Paul Kagame and the First Lady, Jeannette Kagame.
