COURT GRANTS SARAH TO ATTEND BURIAL AS THE LATE COHEN WILL BE BURIED WITHOUT A COFFIN

By Chris Ojow

Being a Member of the top Jewish high priest, the traditions and procedures of the Jewish will be strictly adhered to.

As High Court Lady Justice Stella Mutuku granted murder suspect Sarah Wairimu Cohen permission to attend the burial at the Jewish cemetery.

The programme will start at exactly 2pm East Africa Time along Wangare Marthai Road, and the Langata Prison Officers has been ordered by the High Court to facilitate Sarah’s movement to the burial site.

Anybody who has not been invited should stay way and that’s the Jewish tradition, contrary to African culture where there are no invitations in a funeral and politicians insult one another.

Women including the late Cohen wife Sarah and the Sister will not be allowed near the grave and that’s the procedure in Jewish funerals, they will stand several metres away from the grave.

The African culture where they burry using expensive coffins running into hundreds of thousands shillings will not apply, as the late Cohen will be buried and transported without a coffin.
