Monday September 23, 2019 - Lawyer Cliff Ombeta lashed out at Philip Murgor on Friday for questioning the content of the will left behind by slain Dutch tycoon Tob Cohen.

This is after Murgor, who is representing Cohen's widow, Sarah Wairimu, claimed that the will which was prepared by Cohen's lawyer, Chege Kirundi, has been compromised.
This was the excuse that Wambui gave through Murgor, while declaring that she will not attend the session for the opening and reading of the will, which had been slated for today (Friday).
Ombeta, who is representing Cohen's family, hit out at Murgor for allegedly soiling Chege's reputation, challenging him to air his concerns through the right channels.
“He is trying to throw mud into the water and say that nobody is going to have a bath in that water (sic),” he told the press at Bruce House in Nairobi, adding that the will is intact.
“At this particular moment it is being opened; the will is sealed and has no problem," he added, a day after Murgor termed the will "severely compromised".
This comes following a publication by a local daily that indicated the late Cohen had left his Sh400 million mansion in Kitusuru among other properties to his sister, Gabrielle Van Straten.
