Why the extra "wa"?

Must be a mistake. Shouldn't be there.

Or is it indicating the parents' possessions? "These are of my parents" or "These are my parents'", assuming that you're pointing at something?

A sentence like that would be something like "Hizi ni za wazazi wangu"

No. It does not mean parents' possessions but rather the parents themselves

I did some experiment and wrote - these are parents of mine. Did not work. =D
