Murdered billionaire Tob Cohen’s embattled wife Sarah Wairimu Kamotho has spoken on the controversial murder of her husband whose body was found in an underground water tank at their Kitusuru home.
Speaking shortly after Cohen’s body was retrieved from an underground water tank on Friday, Sarah, through her lawyer Philip Murgor distanced herself from the findings and instead blamed DCI boss George Kinoti and his team, alleging that he could know more about Cohen’s gruesome murder.
“They took Wairimu to court and we didn’t come back. Today (Friday) at 2:40pm we contacted the gateman and he informed us that the police had come here. We rushed here and found the police working in a corner by themselves, without Wairimu and us (the defence team).
“There is a sewage system and it had fresh cement covering the manhole cover. They all knew that is what they wanted to dig. They dug it and removed the cover. Kinoti had already known it was Cohen and announced it. We want to know how he knew it was Tob Cohen before he came out as the body was retrieved over an hour later,”
The lawyer also questioned how Kinoti arrived at the conclusion that the retrieved body was Cohen’s.
“The remains were pulled out and we believe he looks like Tob Cohen but the body was wrapped up and we could not see it. He was also well dressed as if he was up and about and he was tied up which is very unfortunate.
Speaking on the murder, the DCI boss explained that “Cohen was murdered in his own residence. It is a gruesome murder. They took their time to kill innocent Cohen. I will not describe much now, but in the subsequent unfolding of events”.
“He was bound, hands, legs and the neck, before he was murdered and then they hid him in an underground water tank,” Kinoti added.
“Those people who have been saying that he is dead, we should ask them how they were so certain of his death because the rest of us were looking and hoping to find him alive,” Murgor questioned.
