Zambia Mourns Ethiopian Airlines Crash Victims

The Zambian government has sent a message of condolences to the Ethiopian government and families of Ethiopian Airlines passengers who died in a plane crash yesterday morning.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes to extend deep condolences to the government of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia and families of passengers who died in the Ethiopian Airline plane crash…,” Minister of Foreign Affairs Joseph Malanji stated.

He further, in a statement, said the Zambian Embassy in Ethiopia would continue to monitor the situation in that country and update the ministry accordingly.

“I wish inform the public that Ethiopian Airlines’ final list of passengers on the flight shows there was no Zambian on board,” Malanji stated.

The Ethiopian Airlines flight ET 302/10 from Addis Ababa to Nairobi crashed yesterday morning around Bishoftu area, six minutes after take-off from Bole International Airport.

    Another dark day for Africa. Similar accident was recorded in Indonesia just few months ago. The technology era is good but if it is true that pilots were not informed on computerised changes to the plane then I support the call to ground all 737 800 Max. The manufacturer s appetite to react to competition could cost nations of valuable lives and resources. Africa and the 3rd world has been a dumping ground for too long. Mother Africa I grieve for your children. Rest in Eternal Peace Children of God.

      Exactly my thoughts. The shuttle that goes to the moon when landing has a parachute that comes out to slow the speed. How about putting a provision for such on top of the passenger jets? With just a touch of the button the it let’s the aircraft float until it lands.
