A sombre mood engulf the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport when loved ones gathered to recieve the remains of their loved ones who perished in the ill fated Ethiopian Airlines crash.

The crash that claimed 157 lives, left some of the relatives collecting soil owing to the state of the bodies retrieved at the crash site.

The plane crash that occurred on March 30th 2019, has taken approximately 6 months for the Ethiopian Authorities to establish the identity of the crash victims.

The Kenyan families had earlier sued Boeing, the giant Aerospace manufacturer for its role in the plane crash, claim that saw each family getting $1.2 million.

The crash saw the worldwide grounding of Boeing 737- MAX airline model, a move that has plunged Boeing into losses.
