Families of Boeing 737 MAX crash victims protest in D.C.

Families that lost loved ones in the Ethiopian Airlines crash held a vigil on Wednesday in Washington DC six months after the Boeing 737 MAX crash.

Relatives of the departed including a Kenyan-Canadian Paul Njoroge, waved pictures of their departed kin and flags representing their nationalities.

”While all your lives move on for the last six months, the lives of the families of the victims, my life has not moved an inch,” Njoroge told reporters.

Mr Njoroge lost his wife, three children and a mother in law in the crash.

Micheal Stumo who lost his daughter said: “To remember those we lost, to remember Sammy my daughter, to remember Paul’s family, that the primary purpose of this day.”

Wednesday’s vigil was held outside the offices of the Department of Transportation.

The affected families had earlier held a meeting with Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao.

She assured them that the Boeing 737 Max aircraft models would remain grounded until all safety issues are addressed.
