Wife of Dutch business tycoon Tob Cohen, Sarah Wairimu, on Thursday visited her late husband’s grave and laid a tombstone on his grave.
Ms Wairimu, who is the main suspect in Cohens murder, issued a statement saying that she would hold a private ceremony at a suitable time.
“I have today laid a tombstone at the grave of my late husband, Tob Chichou Cohen. At a suitable time, I will hold a private ceremony to commemorate the laying of the tombstone as appropriate,” said Ms Wairimu.
The late businessman was in September interred at the Jewish Cemetery on Wangari Maathai Road, Nairobi.
The burial had been postponed for a day due to failure to get 10 rabbis as per the Jewish rights.
The Dutchman, a former CEO of Philips Electronics East Africa, was reported missing from their Lower Kabete home in Nairobi between July 19 and July 20, 2019.
His wife Wairimu was arrested days after his disappearance and while in police custody, Cohen’s body was found in a septic tank at his home in Kitisuru, Spring Valley, Nairobi on September 13.
His body was found in the septic in his compound, almost 60 days after he was reported missing.
At the time, the 71-year-old tours and travel expert had been pursuing a divorce case against Ms Wairimu. He had also filed an assault case against her.
