We extend our previous analysis on the symmetry limit properties of non-leptonic and weak radiative decay amplitudes of hyperons in a scheme of mirror matter admixtures in physical hadrons to include the two-body non-leptonic decays of $\Omega^-$ and the two photon and two pion decays of kaons. We show that the so-called parity-conserving amplitudes predicted for all the decays vanish in the strong flavor SU(3) symmetry limit. We also establish the specific conditions under which the corresponding so-called parity-violating amplitudes vanish in the same limit.
