An Ethiopian Airlines jet crashed yesterday after departing from Addis Ababa, killing all 157 aboard—including eight Americans and 18 Canadians; leading to an usually swift reaction regarding Boeing Co.’s 737 MAX in the wake of the second deadly disaster involving the new model in recent months.
The Ethiopia Airlines plane crash that took the lives of 157 people, has triggered a wave of sympathy from prominent politicians and others around the globe.
Former President John Dramani Mahama was “deeply saddened” by the news and offered “heartfelt condolences to those who have lost family, friends and loved ones as a result of this tragedy.”
And this is what the candidate and leader of National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama had to say;
“We received news of the crash of Ethiopian Airlines ET302, bound for Nairobi, with shock and dismay. As we are all know, ET has been the aviation workhorse of Africa and it is normal for many of us to fly to Addis Ababa and connect through Bole Airport to the many far-flung destinations across Africa and the world.
Our hearts go out, at this time, to Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali, the Ethiopian people and the families of all who perished in the crash. This is surely a difficult time for the families of the dead, their employers, and the management and staff of Ethiopian Airlines”.
