Quindos Karanja travelled from Nakuru to Nairobi to meet his beloved family members on Sunday but he could not have imagined that it would be one of the darkest days of his life.

Following news that an Ethiopian Airlines plane had crashed moments after take-off, Karanja later learnt that he had lost his wife Anne Wangui, daughter Caroline Nduta and three grandchildren who were all in the ill-fated plane.

In an interview with KTN News, a visibly distressed Karanja revealed the last conversation he had with his wife, saying she was excited to be coming back home but something did not feel right.

“It is like she was expecting something. She told me, “I am excited but I have fear in me...I don’t know why.”

“It is a message I am reading time and again,” he said.

Karanja spoke highly of his deceased wife, describing her as his best friend.

“She was not only a wife but a friend…to the entire family…a mentor and a very supportive person.

“She assisted me in so many occasions,” he said.

He further appealed to Kenyans to pray for all those who lost their loved ones in the crash saying it is difficult but God is in control.

Karanja’s neighbours and friends back in Nakuru described the deceased as kind-hearted and welcoming and promised to stand with him during this difficult moment.
