Friday September 27, 2019 - Late businessman, Tob Cohen’s widow, Sarah Wairimu, has denied claims that her husband owed over Sh 35 million to two Kiambu politicians.
In an affidavit signed by her lawyer, Philip Murgor, Sarah, who is still incarcerated at Langata Women’s Prison, said that she is not aware that her late husband owed anyone such colossal amounts, let alone any Kiambu politicians.
Sarah, who is the chief suspect in the murder of her husband, said she learnt about the said allegations through the media after the opening of Cohen’s will.
“I further learnt that the will opening ceremony was attended by a politician, one Patrick Muiruri and that two Kiambu politicians were claiming to be owed a sum of Sh35 Million by my late husband” reads the affidavit.
In the affidavit, Wairimu also argues that there are no compelling reasons she should be denied bail bbecause no evidence has been presented in court to support a murder charge.
Tob Cohen disappeared on July 19th but his body was found inside a septic tank in his Kitisuru home 42 days later.
Sarah and her clandestine lover, Peter Karanja, are the main suspects.
