Widow of slain NYC cab driver Kutin Gyimah is expected to attend the press conference

The “devastated” widow of slain taxi driver Kutin Gyimah is expected to join a sea of ​​taxi drivers at a news conference Sunday morning in support of the family he left behind.

Gyimah, 52, was killed Saturday while stalking a group of passengers who were trying to rob him in Queens, according to the NYPD.

A punch from one of the suspects sent Gyimah flying onto the sidewalk of Beach 54th Street and Arverne Boulevard in the Rockaways. He hit his head in the street and died, police said.

New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers spokesman Fernando Mateo met with Gyimah’s wife and their four children, ages 3, 5, 7 and 8, on Saturday.

“They are just devastated. She’s speechless — she’s crying, she’s whining,” Mateo told the Post.

“Every time she looks at the pictures on the wall, she breaks down,” he said.

“He leaves her with four babies and won’t come back.”

An online family fundraiser had raised nearly $18,000 for the family as of Saturday night.

“He was one of our taxi drivers who worked honestly and tirelessly to support his family,” Spyros Drakos wrote.

“During the worst days of the pandemic, he was one of the few left driving a cab to support our city and its citizens.”

The NYSFTD is offering a $15,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the three men and two women wanted in connection with the robbery and fatal assault.
