Tob Cohen’s Sister Ms. Gabrielle Van Staten has been at the forefront of the funeral arrangements of her late brother.
The remains of Tob Cohen will be laid to rest at the Jewish cemetery in Nairobi. However, Gabrielle will not be attending the burrial as she jetted out of the country a day after the will was opened.
Her Lawyer Cliff Ombeta said Gabrielle and her husband had to fly back to Netherlands due to personal reasons.
There had been a push and pull as Gabrielle had wanted to be given the body after the post mortem had been concluded but Sarah Wairimu had disputed saying that she is also entitled to burying the body.
They later on had an agreement and their lawyers announced that both Gabrielle and Sarah would take part in the burial.
Sarah’s lawyer will be filling an application at the court to allow her attend the burial. She is currently in remand at the Lang’ata women’s prison.
