Gilgil MP Martha Wangari who is the wife to Nakuru businessman and suspect in Tob Cohen’s murder, Peter Karanja has said she is not ready to house him.

Through her lawyer George Kimani Martha disputed the said report saying the house that Karanja claims is his fixed abode is actually hers.

This was after the pre-bail report of Peter Karanja was today presented in court to be used to determine whether he will be released or not.

‘I did not kill Tob Cohen,’ Peter Karanja tells the court

However, all lawyers in the case including the prosecution have opposed his submissions arguing that he is a stranger to the proceedings and the court should not listen to him.

The prosecution argues that this is not a divorce case or a land case but a murder case.

Wangari’s lawyer insisted that Wangari is not here to ask the court to deny Karanja bail but rather she wants the court to know their marital status and the status of the house.

‘We are here to tell the court that the house belongs to my client.’ Said the lawyer

Karanja’s lawyer has told Judge Daniel Ogembo that the said house is rightfully his and there is an order by a Nakuru court on the same.

They claim that Wangari was seeking eviction orders against him but the court ruled in his favour.

The court will deliver Karanja’s bail ruling on Tuesday next week.
