Two demands made by families of the Ethiopia crash victims

Listen to our pleas

A section of families of the Ethiopian Airlines plane tragedy victims on Thursday demanded for the government to speed up the DNA process and help them in compensation through legal representation.

During a meeting held at Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) in Nairobi between the families and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, some families stated that they felt they had been abandoned by the government.

One such family was that of the late Immaculate Odera, who was among the Kenyans who lost their lives during the crash that occurred a week ago.

Foreign Affairs Principal Secretary Ambassador Macharia Kamau however moved to reassure the families in mourning that the government would help them.

Njoroge refuses to bury soil from crash site

On Wednesday, a man identified as Paul Njoroge, who is among the people who lost loved ones in the incident, stated that he would not bury the soil from the crash site due to it being something against his religion.

Njoroge, who lost his wife, three children and the mother-in-law in the incident, is a seventh day adventist and noted that he would instead have a prayer mass in honor of the family.

He further explained that the decision would allow his friends and close relatives go back to their day to day lives.
