Statement of the State of the Union (SOTU) on the Crash of Ethiopian Airlines ET 302 from Addis Ababa to Nairobi.

The State of the Union (SOTU) Coalition has received with deep shock and is utterly saddened by the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET302 which occurred on Sunday, March 10, 2019. The incidence has indeed thrown the entire civil society space across Africa into disarray as occasioned by the loss of lives of passengers and crew members making contributions in their respective fields to various aspects of human development on the continent and indeed across the globe.
SOTU is particularly further demoralized by the revelation that some passengers on board ET 302 were billed to participate in a scheduled meeting of the AU ECOSOCC which was to take place in Nairobi. We by this means commiserate with the entire Permanent Committee and the members of the organ of Civil Society and the Diaspora (CIDO) and use this medium to express our deepest sympathies on the mishap just as we extend condolences to all who have lost loved ones in the crash.
In solidarity. State of the Union (SOTU).
