In Summary
  • Judge Lesiit allowed pathologists for Ms Wairimu and the family of the late Cohen to be present during the examination.
  • But the judge said the court has nothing to do with the internment of the remains.
  • The court also barred the media from publishing details of the investigations into Mr Cohen’s murder.

The High Court has directed that Sarah Wairimu, the estranged wife of murdered Dutch tycoon Tob Cohen, will plead to charges on September 26.

Justice Jessie Lesiit on Monday postponed the plea taking after it emerged that Ms Kamotho was yet to undergo a mental exam.

The court directed that the mental assessment be done within seven days, and that a post-mortem exam on Mr Cohen’s body be done on Tuesday.

Judge Lesiit allowed pathologists for Ms Wairimu and the family of the late Cohen to be present during the examination of the body.

BURIAL

Cohen’s family, represented by lawyers Cliff Ombeta and Dunstan Omari, told the court that immediately post-mortem exam is done, they will seek for the release of the body for burial.

But the judge said the court has nothing to do with the internment of the remains.

The judge also agreed to a plea by defence lawyer Philip Murgor to argue Ms Wairimu’s bail application after taking plea on September 26.

Mr Murgor said the suspect has been in custody since August 28.

She directed that Ms Wairimu remains at the Lang’ata Women Prison for the next 10 days.
