On the flight was Sister Florence Yongi, a nun who had been serving in the Democratic Republic of Congo, who was also from Nakuru county.
In an interview with Citizen TV, the nun’s sister Mary recounted her last moments with her elder sibling. She said:
She sent me a text message after leaving Congo and after landing in Ethiopia. Then after that she told me she has left Ethiopia and we agreed to meet at the airport in Nairobi. Then after that, the news (on the plane crash) broke.
