Bryant Swenson and his wife Lauren, from Utah, were driving near Mai Mahiu on November 30 when three masked men attacked their car.
The couple, who moved to Nairobi with their three children to open a CrossFit gym, spotted a white van which the gangsters are believed to have been trying to rob.
Bryant said in a Facebook post about the attempted robbery, that one of the men was carrying a gun but couldn't get it out of his waistbelt in time.
As the bandits rushed towards their Toyota Land Cruiser, Bryant had to reverse backwards to give himself time to roll up his window before moving past the dangerous criminals.
He then quickly shifted back into drive and sped past the three bandits who hurled their giant blades at the passing car.

No m stay out of Kenya idiots

If they hadn’t it reacted, that would have ended badly.
My best wishes to them.
A cross fit gym ?
Alternately they could go save non-Christian souls living on islands in the South Indian Ocean.
Or maybe they could take a “Prove People Are NICE”-type mountain bike tour of Tajikastan.
Or maybe go pet bears in the Yukon.
"After our bike trip, we'll go visit our friends, they're opening a Cross Fit in Kenya..!"
Good thing we once had a Kenyan as pResident!
Great job Democrats!
I hear Algeria is lovely this time of year, let’s go.
I have sometimes heard people say that the dangers of travelling in certain places, and that if you just “keep aware” you will be fine. Terrible advice
I saw the documentary.
Stupid man ...................
...maybe they can work machete wielding into one of their fitness classes....
The Mau Mau spirit lives on.
He had to “reverse backwards”, the professional “journalist” wrote.
God the media is just such poor quality.
Who would be coming to that Gym? They might get hacked up in the parking lot, before they even make it into your Gym.
Why choose to move INTO a place like that, bringing your wife and young children with you?
Some people have a deep hunger for adventure and excitement. They wish there were still lots of Circuses so they could run off and join one. We need risk takers like that, but how about just go alone. Kenya will never be as civilized as the states, probably not even as civilized as Mexico.
"Your Agent For Change", "Register For Change", "Vote For Change"
(2008 campaign site of course no longer exists)
From the website Atlas Shrugs, June 17, 2008:
Watch this video of the conflict in Kenya months back [see link below]. Odinga and Obama are Luo. Odinga and his American counterpart and strategist Obama both campaigned on this canard of "change". Obama campaigned for Odinga. Adam pointed out that Obama's been in Nairobi politicking more recently than he's been to Iraq. Why now does Obama pretend he doesn't know him?
Listen as the Luo calls itself the "Taliban" in the video. It's graphic, it's gruesome but it is who Obama supported. Watch the whole thing, particularly the Luos burning a church, raping women, and hacking a man to death -vid hat tip kasper
"When Raila Odinga lost the presidential election last week (12/27/2007) to Mwai Kibaki, he claimed the vote was rigged, whereupon his tribal followers went on murderous rampages such as in the town of Eldoret, where on New Years Day dozens of people were burned to death in a church set on fire. Throughout Kenya, hundreds of people have been politically murdered in the last few days."
Up to 1,000 killed in Kenyan crisis: Odinga

Odinga, who turned 63 on Monday, faces a dilemma of responding to international pressure to avoid provoking more violence while also maintaining momentum to oust Kibaki.
"...this hasn't even gotten into the relationship between Obama and Raila Odinga, yet another politician who ran on the 'hope & change' theme while utilizing criminal ties, who would then stage a violent and bloody uprising when national elections didn't go his way. Somehow we don't hear much about the nightly phone calls between Sen. Obama and Raila Odinga these days..."
Lol! Good posts!
