BY PRUDENCE WANZA – Court has barred the DCI, DPP, and victims in the ongoing case of Tob Cohen’s murder from addressing the media on investigations and details of the case.
Justice Jessie Lessit has also ordered the media to restrict from reporting on investigations pending the hearing and determination of the case. Lessit has made the orders today in court where Sarah Wairimu, estranged wife to Tob Cohen was expected to plead to charges of murder.
Wairimu did not plead to the charges as she had not yet undergone mental assessment. Her lawyer, Philip Murgor, told the court that it is not an accident that she was not taken for mental assessment but it is a ploy by the prosecution to buy more time.
The prosecution objected to submission by Murgor that they buying more time stating that the defense kept taking the DCI in circles on whereabouts of Tob Cohen.
The post Mortem on Cohen’s body will be conducted tomorrow in the presence of all the parties involved in the case.
Lawyers Cliff Ombeta, Dunstan Omari and Shadrack Wambui will be watching brief for the family in the matter.
Sarah Wairimu is expected to plead to murder charges on September 26 after undergoing the mental assessment test to ascertain whether she is fit to stand trial.
