Fallen Dutch tycoon’s widow, Sarah Wairimu requested the court on September 16 to release her on bail so that she could fight for her late husband’s property.
Sarah through her lawyer, Philip Murgor, noted that her home in Kitisuru valued at ksh. 400 million risked being grabbed since nobody lived at the house. Further the widow stated that her pending divorce case needed to be concluded for her to receive her 50% share of the billionaire’s wealth.
In addition, Lawyer Philip Murgor refuted claims that Tob’s property inclusive of his Kitisuru home, had been handed over to his sister, Gabrielle Van Straten as reported by the media. In his wisdom, Murgor noted that he was not aware of such developments.
Sarah Wairimu was arrested in connection to her husband’s disappearance but later held as the main suspect in Cohen’s murder. The Dutch tycoon had been missing for 40 days before his lifeless body was discovered in an empty underground water tank at his Kitisuru home.
Its in the same hearing that Judge Jesse Lessit consequently banned the media from publishing details of the Cohen Murder case until further notice. Sarah’s plea taking is scheduled for September 26.
