Kenya court convicts two for helping deadly jihadist attack on shopping mall

By Humphrey Malalo and George Obulutsa

NAIROBI (Reuters) – A Kenyan court convicted two men on Wednesday for helping al Qaeda-linked gunmen storm Nairobi’s Westgate shopping mall and kill at least 67 people in a 2013 assault that proved Somali militants could strike at the heart of the capital.

The attack on the upscale mall – a favourite with the country’s growing middle class and foreign workers – came two years after the East African nation sent troops into Somalia following a series of kidnappings and raids on Kenyan soil.

A third defendant, also charged under a national terrorism prevention act, was acquitted in the trial, the only prosecution Kenya mounted over the assault by Somali al Shabaab militants.

Four gunmen died during the attack in one of the most secure areas of the Kenyan capital, and it has never been proven that there were any others who escaped.

Swope honored as a role model for helping others

A business, sports and community leader for almost 70 years in Columbus has received one of the top honors from the state.

Joe Swope Jr., 85, is one of 24 Indiana senior citizens selected to receive the 2020 Golden Hoosier Award, presented through the office of Indiana Lt. Gov. Suzanne Crouch in collaboration with Indiana Family and Social Service Administration’s Division of Aging.

The recipients are being recognized for their long-term commitments to volunteering, their positive impacts to the lives of others and for serving as exceptional role models, Crouch said.

As a child, Swope had quite a role model to look up to. His father, Joe Swope Sr., was quarterback for the Indiana Hoosiers in 1915 during a brief time that Jim Thorpe serve as assistant coach. Thorpe is considered by many to be the most prolific athletes of the 20th Century.

Jacksonville’s Sulzbacher celebrates 25 years of helping homeless

Irwin Wright once lived under Jacksonville’s Main Street bridge.

Now he works on top of the same bridge — working the controls of the lift span — and credits Jacksonville nonprofit Sulzbacher and its homelessness prevention programs for helping him find a new path.

“If not for Sulzbacher, I’d probably still be up under that bridge,” he said. “I’d lost all hope. I give thanks to them every day. … Sulzbacher has been like that bridge to me, [taking me] from being homeless to having independence.”

Wright’s story was one of the highlights for Sulzbacher’s annual Transformations fundraiser Wednesday, which also celebrated its 25th anniversary. Normally planned as a nighttime gala, the 2020 event was streamed at lunchtime Wednesday because of the coronavirus pandemic.

About $405,000 of the $425,000 fundraising goal had already been raised. An additional $20,597 was donated during the event.
