Cohen to be buried on September 23, says family


Slain businessman Tob Cohen will be buried on Monday in a private ceremony.
After an agreement between the legal teams, Cohen will be buried at a Jewish cemetery in Nairobi at 2pm.
Jewish tradition prescribes that a person should be buried as quickly as possible, usually after 36 hours, but this would be impractical given the circumstances.
Speaking on Thursday, Wairimu’s lawyer Philip Murgor and the Cohen’s family lawyer Cliff Ombeta said both parties including Wairimu will participate in the event.
“The burial rites will be in accordance with Jewish rites by the concerned community leaders,” said Ombeta.
The DPP, DCI, and Prison Authorities have been requested by both Sarah and Gabriel to facilitate the arrangement.
The funeral of the Late Cohen will proceed subject to obtaining a court order allowing the estranged wife to attend.
Cohen was reported missing from his Kitisuru home in Nairobi between July 19 and July 20 before his body being found in an underground water tank.
