Sarah Wairimu Cohen has decided to honour her late husband by planning to erect a tombstone on his grave.
As the widow of Dutchman businessman Tob Cohen, Sarah has officially notified her in-laws what she intends to do.
Through her lawyer, Philip Murgor, Sarah sent the notice to Benard Cohen and Gabriele Cohen on Thursday.
The letter was forwarded to the Cohens through their lawyer Cliff Ombeta.
“While it is the sole responsibility of our client to erect an appropriate tombstone on the grave of her husband, ..if they are in the country, they will be free to attend any ceremony regarding the same…,” Murgor wrote to the siblings through Ombeta.
Murgor said his client’s decision to preserve the grave was due to her concern that it was neglected.
Cohen’s decomposing body was retrieved from an underground water reservoir in his Farasi Lane home, Kitusuru, on September 13, 2019. He had been missing since July 19.
He was buried at the Jewish cemetery along Wangari Maathai road in Pangani on September 23.
Wairimu was arrested and charged with killing her husband. The hearing continues.
