The Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU) on Monday sent a message of condolence to the family, friends and colleagues of one of its members who was on board the Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed on Sunday, March 10.

KMPDU Secretary General Dr. Ouma Oluga mourned the deceased — Dr. Grace Kariuki — as a dedicated health champion.

Until her death, Dr. Kariuki was working at the Ministry of Health’s Division for Non-Communicable Diseases.

“KMPDU wishes to deeply condole with the family, friends and colleagues of Dr. Grace M. Kariuki even as we join in mourning all the victims of the ill-fated plane. Her loss is a great loss to the medical community in Kenya,” said Dr. Oluga.

Dr. Grace Kariuki was reportedly returning back home from a cancer-related training in Egypt.

Thirty-two Kenyans were among the 157 people who died in the plane crash.
