Sarah Wairimu seeks access to her house to collect her personal belonging

By Faith Karanja | October 31st 2019

The widow of Dutch national Tob Cohen wants to be allowed to collect her car, clothes and personal belongings from her Kitisuru home.

Through her lawyer Philip Murgor, Sarah Wairimu (pictured) said yesterday in court that she had spent a lot of money on clothes and other items. She argued that she should be allowed to collect her clothes from the house that has been cordoned off as a crime scene.

Mr Murgor said his client needs the car, which is parked outside her house. He said Ms Wairimu has been surviving on lifts from relatives and friends. “My client had to buy new clothes, shoes and accessories. The purchases are expensive. She needs the old ones that are in her bedroom urgently,” said Murgor. Prosecutor Catherine Mwaniki in response said all items in that house are exhibits in the murder case.

“Nothing can be released from that house unless an analysis is done,” said Ms Mwaniki.

She added that even the car is an exhibit in the Cohen murder case, and should not be touched until experts clear it. Justice Stella Mutuku declined to issue any orders and instead directed Wairimu to file a formal application which will be heard on Tuesday next week.
