There was a verbal altercation between Sarah Wairimu’s lawyer Philip Murgor and the late Tob Cohen’s close friend, Patrick Muiruri.
In a letter to the parklands OCS, he explains the ordeal of what he refers to as a threat.
I was confronted by Patrick Muiruri, a Kiambu politician who menacingly shouted at me not to pick on his daughter, but on him if I wanted a confrontation, (earlier, on instructions from, client, I had polite, requested the daughter of Muiruri to leave the Cemetery, as the funeral was agreed to be a private ceremony for family only).
THEREAFTER HE INSULTED ME IN THE FOLLOWING WORDS “FUCK YOU” AND SHOUTED “I WILL DEAL WITH YOU OUTSIDE, AS HE ADVANCED TOWARDS ME, HE WAS RESTRAINED BY MR. CHEGE KIRUNDI, AND MR. CLIFF OMBETA -ADVOCATES WHO LUCKILY WERE ON HAND. THE INCIDENT WAS WITNESSED BY GEORGE OUMA-ADVOCATE.
Here is the letter:
During the funeral, Tob Cohen’s pallbearers were geared up with firearms and you can see it below from a picture by Daily Nation.
There was tight security in the funeral. Sarah Wairimu was closely walking with two prison wardens as a dozen armed officers kept watch.
Sarah was expected in court today to take a plea.
