US Embassy sends condolence letter to Kenyan widow after fatal road accident
NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - The Kenyan widow of a man killed in a traffic accident involving a US diplomat said she received a letter of condolence Tuesday from the embassy.
Latifah Naiman Mariki's husband died in a July 11 crash in which Kenyan police say the speeding diplomat crossed the center line in his SUV and hit a mini-bus full of passengers.
US Embassy officials in Nairobi rushed the American and his family out of Kenya the next day.
The case has sparked rage among average Kenyans and government leaders. Many in this East African country are asking that justice be pursued for Ms Mariki and the families of the eight others seriously injured in the crash.
