BY PRUDENCE WANZA – Lawyer Philip Murgor will continue to represent Sarah Wairimu in the Tob Cohen murder case. Lady Justice Stella Mutuku has ruled that Mr Murgor is properly before court and there is no issue of conflict of interest.

The judge stated that no person should be forced to remain in an office if they have already resigned.

“His resignation as a public prosecutor effective since it was received by the DPP,” said Mutuku.

The judge indicated that the revocation of gazette notice is only meant to notify the public.

Sarah Wairimu is expected to take plea and answer to charges of murder.
