Finally US embassy says sorry over accident that killed a Kenyan
The widow of the man killed in a traffic car crash accident by an American diplomat has received a letter of condolence from the US embassy.
Ms Latifah Naiman Mariki lost her husband in anaccident in which a speeding diplomat rammed a minibus killing Mr Haji Lukindo and injuring eight others.
It was not until yesterday when she received the letter which stated that the embassy extended its deepest condolences to the family. The embassy delivered the letter to the police who had not yet delivered it to her.
The letter which was dated July 12, a day after Mr Haji Lukindo died, did not state whether the family would receive any monetary compensation.
The message by Larry E. Andre partly read, “….thoughts and prayers of the entire American Embassy community are with you and your family during this difficult time.”
The incident has generated a lot of rage and Cabinet Secretary for Foreign Affairs Amina Mohammed wrote on Twitter saying that Mariki’s situation was a “sad state of affairs” but the Kenyan Government was handling the matter.-nation.co.ke
