737 Max: Man who lost family in Ethiopian crash wants plane scrapped, Boeing execs tried

A man who lost his wife, mother-in-law and three young children in the March 10 crash of a 737 Max in Ethiopia says Boeing should scrap the plane and top executives should resign and face criminal charges.

Paul Njoroge, who is due to testify before Congress in the U.S. on Wednesday, said in an interview that 737 Max planes should have been grounded after a deadly crash off the coast of Indonesia in October. Instead, they kept flying until another crashed five months later near Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, shortly after takeoff, claiming the lives of his family and 152 others.

If Boeing and the Federal Aviation Administration had done their jobs properly, Njoroge said, “these planes would have been grounded in November and today I would be enjoying summer with my family, I would be playing football with my son.”
