Court allows Sarah Cohen access to her Kitusuru home to collect clothes, handbags


Sarah Wairimu Cohen, who is charged with the murder of her late husband Tob Cohen, has been granted access to her house for purposes of collecting all her clothes, shoes, handbags, grooming tools and wearable items.

The High Court  directed that Sarah be allowed into the Kitusuru home under strict supervision by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the investigating officer and in the presence of her lawyers.

She was also restricted to collect items from only the rooms that she occupied before her arrest.

The court also declined to grant her access to all the other rooms in the house to pick other items that she had listed in the application and it also ruled that it has no jurisdiction to give her back her Kitusuru home.

In an application filed in October last year, Sarah Cohen claimed that she was spending a lot of money buying new clothes yet she had clothes in the house.She also wanted her car, which is parked at the house, so that she doesn’t depend on lifts from relatives and friends.

The high court dismissed an application by Sarah seeking to have the Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti jailed for contempt of court, stating this case was filed in the wrong court.
