Thursday September 19, 2019 - Late Dutch billionaire, Tob Cohen, will be buried on Monday next week after his family, including his wife Sarah Wairimu, agreed on the burial date.
Cohen disappeared on July 19th and his body was found inside a septic tank in his Kitisuru home on Friday last week.
Sarah and her clandestine lover, Peter Karanja, are among five suspects who have been arrested in connection with the murder of Cohen.
Speaking during a press briefing on Thursday, Sarah’s lawyer, Philip Murgor, and Cohen’s family lawyer, Cliff Ombeta, said Sarah and Cohen's sister, Gabrie, will participate in the event.
“The burial rites will be in accordance with Jewish rites by the concerned community leaders," Ombeta said.
Murgor said he will write to prison authorities requesting Sarah to be allowed to attend the burial of her late husband.
Sarah is currently detained in Langata Women’s Prison.
The lawyer also said that they have written to the Chief of Kitisuru to have death permit issued to Sarah since she was the wife to the deceased.
