Central Ohioans React to Mall Attack in Kenya
COLUMBUS (Ashley Yore/Ken Hines) -- Reports of the terrorist attack at a Kenyan mall have been emotionally wrenching for people all over the world, including many in central Ohio.
Kenya native and Columbus State professor Dr. Robert Wafula's daughter and her family live in Nairobi, along with dozens of his friends and relatives.
For us here, it's very, very scary in our hearts," Wafula said. "People are praying about that and calling to find out, but there is not much coming out of this."
Dr. Wafula is planning to travel to Kenya in the near future, as is Columbus native Dayna Harp, who is leaving Friday on a volunteer mission for the Rafiki Childrens Center for orphans, outside of Nairobi.
It's the ugliness of this world. Does it stop your good work? No, it can't stop your good work, Harp said. I don't think the horrible things that happen in this world need to stop the good that goes on in this world. I think that's completely counterproductive to succumb to cowards and terrorists."
