Kenyan wife of missing Dutch billionaire Tob Cohen to stay in police custody
The wife of missing Dutch billionaire Tob Cohen will be detained for six more days at the Muthaiga Police Station.
Sarah Wairimu had appealed against her detainment pending investigations into her husband’s disappearance.
However on Friday, High Court Judge Daniel Ogembo ruled that she remain in police custody until September 12.
The judge said this will allow investigative officers to complete their probe into the billionaire’s disappearance.
He is reported to have gone missing between July 19 and July 20 this year.
The tours and travel magnate has lived in Kenya for 32 years.
He and Wairimu were reportedly embroiled in a bitter divorce case which saw him file assault charges against her a week before he went missing.
“Around midnight, as he was standing on top of the stairs leading to the garden, Sarah suddenly pushed him down stairs, causing our client to fall and seriously injure his forehead,” court papers read.
However, his estranged wife denied the claims.
A report in the Daily Nation quoted her saying: “Tob Cohen has depression and mental condition he won’t address for personal reasons and this has (been) and is causing a lot of problems.”
