A man identified as Paul Njoroge, who lost his family in the Ethiopian Airways plane tragedy, on Wednesday stated that he would not bury the soil from the crash site due to it being something against his religion.
Reason why man who lost family in Ethiopia crash will not bury soil
I can't do that
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 departed.
He further added that the decision was also to have his friends and close relatives go back to their day to day lives.
“This is a big loss for me. It is too painful, but I guess there is nothing much I can do other than accept it and let people continue with their lives,” remarked Njoroge.
The grieving man pointed out that he had opted to wait for the DNA results.
“The six months the government has requested so that it can receive results of the DNA analysis on the 5,000 pieces of human bodies collected from the scene is too long, and so we will just hold a prayer mass and wait for DNA results,” stated the man.
Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 black box results revealed
Last Monday, Ethiopian Transport Minister Dagmawit Moges disclosed the results from the analysis of the Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 black box.
Moges mentioned that the events that faced the Ethiopian Airways flight had “clear similarities” to the Indonesian plane tragedy of Lion Air flight 610.
The minister however did not indicate the specifics of the similarities of the two accidents.
