Heteropaternal Superfecundation

A couple of the geneticists in our secret basement laboratory had shared their suspicions about this a couple of months ago:
Paternity tests then revealed what had happened — two eggs had been fertilized by two different sperm and there was a 99.99% chance the twins had different dads.
The surprised mother realized that the 'enchanted evening' in Havana's Copacabana Lounge and Hotel several decades ago was not just a product of a drug induced haze. Her encounters with both Fidel Castro and the visiting Robert Mugabe must have done the two tricks. She had long wondered how she ended up with that box of Cuban cigars and a 1 Billion Zimbabwean Dollar Banknote.
