Cohen’s burial details

Published

on

The late Dutch tycoon Tob Cohen will be buried on Monday at the Jewish cemetery in Nairobi in what will be a private ceremony.

The burial is expected to be attended by family members and close friends, although his widow Sarah Wairimu hopes to be allowed by the court to attend.

Wairimu, who is currently in remand at Lang’ata Women’s prison, had on Friday, through her lawyer Philiph Murgor, filed an application in court seeking orders to have her bury her late husband.

The case will be heard on Monday morning, ahead of Cohen’s burial set for 1:30pm at the Jewish Community cemetery along Prof Wangari Mathai Road.

Cohen will be buried according to his last wishes as he had written in his will.

In the will, whose fine details have been kept away from from public, Cohen indicated where his remains should be buried.

According to a close source, Cohen chose a spot marked 184 at the Jewish Community Cemetery.

GRAVESIDE RITES

During the ceremony, once the body is at the cemetery no one will be allowed to view it.

The service will be conducted by a rabbi and a black ribbon will be cut to symbolize the individual breaking away from loved ones.

After the eulogy is read, the body, in a wooden coffin, will be taken to the graveside.

Before it is buried, family members and friends will one last time chant prayers before placing dirt on the coffin before it is lowered into the grave.

Cohen was reported missing between July 19 and 20, 2019 only for his body to be found in a septic tank in his home in Kitisuru on September 13, 2019 by detectives drawn from the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI).

Jalang’o says running Churchill Show is too costly- defends Churchill

Published

on

During a Candid interview with fellow comedian Zainabu Zeddy, Jalang’o and Zeddy laid bare their opinions about the Churchill show.
“Let me tell you something Churchill will never reveal, and comedians cannot understand. People see a packed audience and think he has made a lot of money. The tent in which the event is held doesn’t cost less that Ksh3 million,” Jalang’o explained.
Jalang’o who is a close friend of the show host advised comedians to use the platform as a gateway to better things because they could not depend on the show’s allowances to change their lives.
“Performing at private functions and clubs can earn you Ksh 50,000 but you can’t earn that money on Churchill Show because it’s not there,” Jalang’o stated before breaking down the event’s costs.
He then further went on to disclose that running the whole show cost around Ksh5 million.
Jalang’o added that for Churchill to meet the operation cost, it would require at least 5,000 people to pay Ksh 1,000 each for tickets.
“Do you know that sometimes half of the crowd would attend the show for free?” Jalang’o posed to Zeddy.
The radio presenter added that on some nights, Churchill would be lucky to make even Ksh 200,000. He explained that a lot of money would be used to hire chairs, accommodation, lights and stage equipment as well as the technical crew.
He challenged that if the host were making as much money as people thought then he wouldn’t need to work as a presenter at Classic 105 FM.
This revelation comes amid claims that comedians have been getting a raw deal when working on Churchill Show.

Education CS George Magoha has directed both primary and secondary schools to refund second and third term fees to parents who had already paid.

Addressing members of the press on Wednesday, the CS, however, noted that the parents and the institutions are free to enter into an agreement to carry forward the monies to cater for school fees when learners resume classes next year.

The CS spoke a day after he declared the 2020 academic year “lost” due to the coronavirus pandemic threat.

In a press briefing on Tuesday Magoha announced that primary and secondary schools will reopen in January 2021.

The CS said there will be no Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) and Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) examinations this year as they have all been pushed to 2021.

“In consultation with the Ministry of Health, we have agreed schools to reopen when daily Covid-19 cases reduce consistently for 14 days. Social and physical distancing is the most critical factor in ensuring the safety of learners,” said Magoha.
