‘Your days are numbered,’ unbowed Sarah Wairimu tells Tob Cohen’s killers – VIDEO

Slain businessman Tob Cohen’s widow Sarah Wairimu has vowed to fight back and seek justice for the brutal murder of her husband.

Wairimu, who was allowed by the courts to attend Cohen’s burial from prison remand, accused some of Cohen’s friends and family members of pretending to be innocent yet they were guilty.

“I am not scared of anybody. One thing Tob taught me is not to take No for an answer. So even in this, I’m going to fight. And even as we stand here many of the ones who are responsible for Tob’s death here in sheep skin… believe you me your days are also numbered,” said Wairimu.

The dutch tycoon was finally buried at the Jewish community cemetery along Wangari Maathai road, in a Jewish ceremony attended by close family and friends.

A defiant Wairimu apportioned blame to the family of her late husband.

“There are family members who are purporting and even pretending to be family but yours is another story… I was not a secret. Everybody knows Sarah. I’m known as Sarah Tob’s… and now more so, everybody knows all my names,” she added.

Wairimu was under the tight watch of five prison warders from Lang’ata Women’s Prison where she is being held in remand.

Among Cohen’s friends present at the funeral were President Uhuru Kenyatta’s uncle Ngengi Muigai, the president’s cousin Rtd. Captain Kungu Muigai, former Gatundu North Member of Parliament Patrick Muiruri among others.

The funeral was initially slated to take place on Monday but was pushed to Tuesday after they failed to raise the required number of priests required to conduct the final rites.

Only eight priests, instead of the required 10, were available for the burial of the dutch tycoon.

According to the Jewish customs, the final rites for a man of Cohen’s statute are supposed to be conducted by 10 priests and one Rabbi.
