Nairobi — Dutch tycoon Tob Cohen was buried on Tuesday afternoon, at the Jewish cemetery, Nairobi in a closed family and close friends only ceremony.
His widow Sarah Wairimu, who is the main suspect in his murder was among those who attended ceremony after the court granted her permission.
The ceremony was conducted in Hebrew by ten priests.
Also present was Cohen's brother Bernard and other friends and close family members as well as lawyers from both sides-led by Philip Murgor for the widow and Cliff Ombeta who was retained by the Dutch family.
Cohen's burial was scheduled for Monday but was pushed to Tuesday due to unavailability of 10 priests required to conduct the ceremony in line with the Jewish traditions and his background. Only 8 priests were available on Monday.
Among his friends present at the male-dominated funeral was President Uhuru Kenyatta's uncle Ngengi Muigai, his wife and Rtd. Captain Kungu Muigai.
Former Uchumi Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Ciano was also present. "I have paid my last respect to my good friend," he told journalists camping outside the cemetery.
