Sarah Wairimu to Attend Cohen’s Post-Mortem at Chiromo Mortuary

Sarah Wairimu wife of the Late Tob Cohen

The high court on Wednesday granted Sarah Wairimu an order to attend her late husband’s, Tob Cohen, post-mortem which is slated to take place later in the day at Chiromo Mortuary.

Appearing before Justice Mutuku, her lawyer Philip Murgor, confirmed that the process would not take place until she is present.

“An order has just been extracted which will be served on the prison authorities so that she can be brought and be present. So, whatever the case, this procedure will not start until she is brought from Lang’ata women’s Prison, ” Murgor Said.

The post-mortem was supposed to be carried out Monday but failed due to the unavailability of an independent Pathologist, Prof Andrew Kanyi Gachii, recommended by the deceased’s family.

Justice Jessi Lesiit ordered that the body be examined on Tuesday after a letter was presented in court to the effect of the same by Lawyer Murgor.

However, the examination did also not take place due to a pending case in court that wanted Sarah to be present at the post-mortem among other things.

On Wednesday, Murgor felt optimistic that the post mortem would be carried out especially after the presence of government pathologist, Johansen Odour was confirmed.

Ms Wairimu had on Monday requested a visit to the site where the body was found, a bone-cutting saw and enough containers for the material to be analysed and facilities for post-mortem x-ray before the post-mortem was carried out.
