The Touching Story Of Anthony Omari, Kenyan Man Who Took A Machete To The Face To Save 37 Orphans

Former Faraja Children's home caretaker Anthony Omari has resigned. He worked in the Kibera neighborhood. Approximately 37 orphans were residing there at the time. The night Antony was murdered, his sleeping quarters were broken into and several of his possessions were stolen.

Mr. Omari, armed with a hammer, struck one of the invaders to safeguard his family's possessions, and then he, his wife, and their sleeping children proceeded into the bedroom to rouse them up. The attackers assaulted him again, this time with a machete, slicing open his face and leaving him bleeding severely.

According to the Associated Press, Mr. Johnson said he had previously prevented the intruders from entering his home. He ducked behind a wall on January 23 to avoid getting cut by a machete while he was out in public. His next planned trip was to the orphanage, but he had to leave quickly.

Omari told the press that he had stopped three distinct break-in attempts at the orphanage. It was the evening of January 23, 2012, and his good fortune had run out. The sword was brought down with a resounding thud on the face of the victim. He had eleven scars across his forehead and right cheekbone from where the stitches had been placed. He shut the door and kept them out. Omari's facial scar will always be a sobering reminder of what transpired.
