This unfolding tragedy in the Nairobi Mall, has claimed the leading Ghanaian and African writer Kofi Awoonor. Among his many books of poetry, fiction and non-fiction are Night of My Blood (1971); This Earth, My Brother (1971); The Breast of the Earth (1975). Awoonor also served as a UN Permanent Representative for Ghana, and was in Nairobi to participate in the Storymoja Hay Festival, an important literary event. Rest in Peace, Mr Awoonor; peace that triumphs over all violence.
