NAIROBI, April 23 (NNN-KBC) – A law firm based in the United States of America has resolved to offer subsidized legal services to families of the Kenyan victims who perished in the ill-fated Ethiopian Airline crash.
The plane crashed on March 10 this year killing 157 passengers on board. The Aviation consumer advocates argued that majority of the Kenyan families affected by the January tragedy may not be able to meet high legal costs involved in the petition.
John Quindos Karanja from Nakuru County lost his wife, three children and his nine-year-old granddaughter who were travelling back to the Country after being away for several years.
Back home in Subukia, the grand welcome party he had secretly organized for his family went unnoticed.
The 5 were passengers in the ill-fated Boeing 737 Max that had crashed that morning killing all 157 people on board.
Quindos is now among families which have instituted lawsuits against the airline and aircraft manufacturer Boeing.
The law firm will seek answers to the cause of the crash as it seeks compensation for the affected families.
