Sarah Wairimu claims Tob Cohen’s will presented in court was forged
Sarah Wairimu Cohen, who is charged with the murder of her late husband Tob Cohen, now claims that the Will presented in court by her in-laws is forged.
In an application filed on Monday, Sarah wants her sister-in-law Gabrielle Van Straten, who is the sister to the deceased, cross examined over the matter.
Last year, sources close to the family revealed that the already contentious will expressly left out Sarah Wairimu from inheriting anything in Tob Cohen’s estate.
According to insiders, Cohen who did not have a child gave 50 percent of his estate to his sister Gabrielle Straten and the other 50 percent is to be split into half between his nephew and niece.
His bank balances are supposed to be channeled to his sister, Gabrielle.
Sarah Wairimu’s lawyer Philip Murgor snubbed the will opening in September last year claiming it was being done in bad taste at a time Sarah was still locked up in remand and even before his burial.
Meanwhile, the DPP and the DCI have asked the court to remove them in the succession matter arguing that they have wrongly been enjoined in the case.
