Just a few days after the body of Dutch billionaire Tob Cohen was discovered at his Kitisuru home, the deceased’s sister has described the wife, Sarah Wairimu, as nice and charming.

Speaking during a TV interview over the weekend, Gabriele Cohen stated that she does not hold anything against Wairimu who is a suspect in the murder case.

"Sarah was one charming and entertaining and person,” she said, although she maintained that it was painful to lose his brother in such a brutal way.

Her sentiments were echoed by Cohen’s brother-in-law Roy Van Straten who described Wairimu as well-spoken and well-educated.

"She was a nice-looking woman, well-educated and very well-spoken. Her culture was different from ours but we respected that.

I cannot say anything negative about her, absolutely not," said Roy.

On August 28, 2019, Wairimu was picked and interrogated by police for the third time over the disappearance of Cohen from their Lower Kabete home, Nairobi.

The last time Cohen was seen in public he had allegedly been dropped off at a club in Westlands after he left his house on the day he is believed to have disappeared.

The Dutch embassy in Nairobi reported Cohen missing after his family approached Dutch police saying they could not reach him on his mobile phone and it was unusual for him to be out of touch for long.

Investigators say he met two women over lunch at the club on July 20 from around 2pm to 4pm. The two women told police during questioning that the 71-year-old golf lover left the club and they did not know his whereabouts.

Preliminary findings show his mobile phone was switched off at the same place.
