Sarah Wairimu, wife to the estranged billionaire Tob Cohen, on Friday broke silence moments after a Court of Appeal judge was arrested in the connection to the husband’s murder case.
Wairimu, the main suspect in the case, in a rather unexpected move protested High court’s failure by Director of Public Prosecution(DPP) to direct probe on the alleged forgery of Cohen’s will and delayed statements.

Ms Wairimu had earlier on filed an application at the Milimani High Court, seeking orders for the DPP and DCI to prosecute Cohen’s three relatives for alleged fraud and forgery.
Wairimu’s lawyer Philip Murgor snubbed the will opening in September last year claiming it was being done in bad taste at a time Sarah was still locked up in remand and even before his burial.
On the same day that she choose to protest the High Court’s ‘failure’, Judge Sankale Ole Kantai was apprehended by the DCI in regards to the murder case of Tob Cohen.

Reports emerged that Sankale and Cohen’s widow Sarah Wairimu are claimed to have had a romantic relationship.
According to the details, the two met in Kisumu for an intimate getaway after the murder of the Dutch billionaire according to Daily Nation.
The local daily explained that the murder suspect had approached the judge seeking advice on what to do in the event she was arrested.
Sankale being out of Nairobi at the time asked her to travel to the Lake city where he was attending a workshop.
The judge is articulated to have gone a step ahead and facilitated the cost of the trip including her stay at the hotel.
To ensure that the criminal was well taken care off, Sankale instructed his driver to pick her up and take Sarah to Wilson Airport.
In addition, it was understood that the two had a business partnership that went back to the time the judge was just a mere lawyer.
The two are highlighted to have been in contact during the flight.
More revelations were made that Sarah did not book a separate room from that of Sankale at the Aqua Pool hotel.
The cosy trip was, however, cut short after Sarah was forced to travel back to the capital after being summoned by the police.
She went on to record a statement at Kilimani Police Station and requested to have a soft copy of the same for herself.
Sarah then sent the police statement to the Court of Appeal judge asking him to go through it and make changes that he deemed necessary before he gave it back to her.
