Siamese twins Zita and Gita Rezakhanovs are not admitted to final examination. Their mother Zumriyat Rezakhanova told 24.kg news agency.
According to her, girls finish 9th grade of Voenno-Antonovskaya boarding school. “They were preparing for exams, but the school authorities released them from exams. I do not understand why this decision was made. My daughters are smart. After girls’ request to pass the exams along with other graduates the school principal said it was commendable, but he had no right to admit them because of existing regulations. I’m tired of fighting. It is like making war with windmills,” Zumriyat Rezakhanova said.
“The girls were gifted the second life in Russia. I will try to go to Moscow. In 2010 with the assistance of Russian President Dmitry Medvedev we agreed to receive free education at Medical College. But my daughters need constant care, so we need to get the full social package,” she added.
As 24.kg news agency was reported by the Pre-school and School Education Department, by order of the Ministry of Public Health and Ministry of Education children with disabilities are exempted from final exams, since stress may adversely affect their health. “The School Leaving Certificate is issued to children on the results of annual grades. But if Zita and Gita want to pass exams, the issue can be resolved. We should act only in the interests of girls,” noted in the Department and promised to contact the Director of Voenno-Antonovskaya boarding school and to clarify the situation.
Recall, siamese twins Zita and Gita were born on October 19, 1991 in Zapadnoe village, Chui province. The Russian surgeons of Filatov children’s hospital performed a unique operation. The girls have lived separately from each already for 8 years. Despite many years of trial and suffering, the sisters are trying to be optimistic about the future.
