Sarah Wairimu Tob Cohen’s Burial Speech May Send Her To Jail

Sarah Wairimu got herself into deep trouble following her recent comments at the burial of businessman Tob Cohen. This is because she violated a court order not to speak about the case. The court had restricted Tob Cohen’s murder suspects from speaking on matters pertaining to the case.

Certainly, in Kenya, this is not the first time in the recent past that a Kenyan man has died under suspicious circumstances and his wife accused of being involved in the death. However, the case of Sarah and her late husband, Tob Cohen has made headlines for several weeks for two main reasons. Her late husband was very wealthy and a foreigner.

The court had granted Sarah a temporary release from custody to attend her late husband’s burial. During the burial, she made several comments concerning Tob Cohen’s murder including sending a warning to the people she alleges killed him. “The ones who are responsible for Tob’s death………your days are also numbered.” These comments may add more trouble to what she is facing now.

However, her legal counsel, Philip Murgor did not address the issue. Instead, he argued that Sarah’s continued detention is against her constitutional rights. “I am not applying for bail. We are arguing about the rights of Sarah. She has been in court for over 30 days. They should be mindful that she has been denied her liberty for 30 days.
They started by challenging her mental state, which is not our issue, it is the issue of the state. I ask the court to order the prosecution to file their order in the next 2 hours so that her constitutional rights are guaranteed.”
Advocate Murgor said in court.

“After 30 days the issues of witness prosecution should have been dealt with if they are state witnesses indeed. We have not seen their witnesses,” Murgor stated.

On the other hand, Catherine Mwaniki a representative from the Director of Public Prosecution had this to say;
“We seek to file a contempt of court in the same number of days.”

During the burial function, Sarah went as far she as condemning some family members of setting her up.

Finally, Justice Stella Mutuku, who is hearing the case against Sarah Wairimu, declined to ascertain Murgor’s petition and postponed the case to 1st of October 2019. According to court orders, this would probably be when Wairimu will take a plea on the accusation that she murdered her husband. Further, the judge will likely address the issue of contempt of court at this time.
