Tob Cohen’s widow, Sarah Wairimu, has been granted Sh4 million bond and two sureties, with the alternative of Sh2 million bail after spending 44 days in custody.

She has however been given conditions that she shouldn’t set foot neither at her Kitisuru home nor Tob Cohen limited.

In addition to that, before she pays bond or bail, she has to provide testimonials from her parents and those who will host her before she is released.

Justice Stella Mutuku has also ordered that she should not contact Tob Cohen’s siblings and that’s he should also provide testimonials telling the court how she will support herself.

Although the prosecution counsel is dissatisfied with this ruling and wants to appeal, Justice Mutuku maintained that being given bail a constitutional right of person unless there are compelling reasons to detain the suspect.

“I have considered the compelling reasons,” Mutuku said.

The court was also informed that the DCI is holding the accused person’s passport and no evidence has been adduced to show she has another one.

“I find that the prosecution has not proved that she will flee from jurisdiction,” Mutuku said.

Mutuku continued to say that the home is being guarded by police but the accused, being without a home is not her making.
