Buying new clothes, shoes, accessories - Sarah Wairimu's life after being released

Sarah Wairimu is accused of killing her billionaire husband Tob Cohen

Sarah Wairimu Cohen complains on being forced to buy new clothes, shoes, accessories after court barred her access to her Kitisuru home

Sarah Wairimu, wife to deceased Dutch billionaire Tob Cohen, on Wednesday lodged a complaint with the courts seeking orders to allow her access to her Kitisuru home.

The restraining order was part of the terms placed by Justice Stella Mutuku when she was released on Sh2 million bail.

Through her lawyer Philip Murgor, Ms Wairimu complained that she has been forced to buy new clothes, shoes and accessories because she cannot access her bedroom.

"She’s had to buy clothes, shoes and accessories, she needs to take these items from her bedroom …all be released to her as a matter of urgency.

"We are asking the court to grant the accused person permission to get her personal car which has never featured in this case, she has had to purchase clothes and ask for lifts from friends and relatives which is expensive," former DPP Murgor argued.

Active Crime Scene

The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP), however, argued that the suspect could not be allowed to access the premises because it is still an active crime scene.

Justice Mutuku who heard the oral application declined to grant any orders directing Ms Wairimu to file a formal application which will be heard on Tuesday.
