Wairimu: Why I won’t attend Cohen’s Will reading

Published

on

The final wishes of the late Dutch businessman Tob Cohen will be read on Saturday at a private event scheduled to be held at his lawyer’s office in Nairobi, ahead of his burial scheduled for Monday.

But his widow, Ms Sarah Wairimu, a suspect in his killing, distanced herself from the event.

“It is evident that the confidential nature of the will you claim to possess, or any others for the matter, has been severely compromised … she does not wish to participate in any related process,” her lawyer Philip Murgor said.

Ms Cohen was referring to a newspaper story that divulged the contents of the document, which has largely been taken to be true because the story has not been disputed.

Mr Cohen’s will will be read before his sister Gabrielle Van Straten, Mr Bernard Cohen, and lawyer Omari Danstan Mogaka.

Kirundi & Company Advocates, which has the document, said in a letter to the parties involved: “This is to notify you that, since the body of Tob Cohen was identified at Chiromo mortuary during the autopsy process, we shall be opening the will of the late in our offices at 11.30am tomorrow in our chambers.”

Ms Wairimu identified Cohen’s body on Wednesday after a team of pathologists, led by Chief Government Pathologist Johansen Oduor, performed a post-mortem exam.

But Dr Oduor noted that the final report will take a few weeks to compile, because some samples taken from the body will be taken for further DNA, histology and toxicology tests.

Once they receive the results, each pathologist will make a report before meeting up to compile the final report, which will be used as evidence in the case.

On Thursday, Mr Cohen’s family and Ms Wairimu agreed to bury him privately according to Jewish religious rites at the Jewish cemetery on Wangari Maathai Road in Nairobi at 2pm if the court grants the widow her request to participate in the ceremony.

Mr Murgor and Mr Cliff Ombeta, for the Cohen family, said they had reached a compromise on the issue to allow the deceased to get a decent burial.

‘My addiction with strippers left me in debts worth millions,’ Robert Burale

Published

on

Robert Burale has in the past been in debts running into millions but he managed to come out of it unlike most Kenyans who are still struggling.

In a past interview with K24 Faraja, Burale stated that his addiction to stripping and the pressure to keep up a facade of a flashy lifestyle pushed him into debts.

I used to live with both my parents during primary and secondary school but at some point they separated.

Life was good as we were living a high end life before I went to study marketing in London.

I enjoyed going to a new country and the freedom that came with it.

Little did Burale know that some types of friends can either make or break you.

When I went there I made both good and bad friends.

I was lucky because everything was being paid for by my dad for during my first year so I had a lot of free time.

I started going to strip clubs while in London with the friends I had made.

He adds,

As an African man living abroad, every one wants you, so the attention started making us do things we would not consider doing before.

We started hoping from one strip club to the other.

At some point we got bored with strip clubs in our area and we started venturing to other areas.

He adds,

STRIP GIRLS ARE TAUGHT HOW TO MILK YOU DRY.

WHEN THEY SEE YOU HAVE MONEY, THEY WILL MILK ALL OF IT. WHEN YOU DON’T CHUCK OUT MONEY THEY WILL MAKE SURE YOU GIVE THEM SOME.
EVEN IF IT MEANS REMOVING THEIR BRA.

Burale adds it took time for him to accept his addiction.

It took time for me to know I am addicted. For three years I was just in strip club evangelism where we ‘recruit’ other people into the club.

When I came back to Kenya I found so many strip clubs had been opened and so I started going to savor their services.

He adds

The problem was that when I was in London there was money but once I came back I had no money as my dad had passed away.

The family started fighting for what he had.

In a past interview with Radio Jambo, his ex wife Rozinah Mwakideu, had stated that one of the many reasons they broke up is the many debts he had.

I would receive calls now and then from people and police saying Robert had unsettled debts.

It was a character he had and I kept waiting because I thought he would change because he was born-again.

For example, the main reason why I left was after my friend came to visit me and after she left she wanted to sue him. I couldn’t handle that pressure plus other personal issues.

Burale explains that his addiction to stripping was where his journey to debts began.

There is no strip club where a woman will give you a show with no money.

There are men who spend even 100,000 on a night.

I once did that and the sad thing is that it was borrowed money.

He adds,

I had to keep up a reputation. I had to go to big hotels and dress well so I kept borrowing.

With time my debts ran into millions.

It got so bad that I had to borrow *John to pay *Peter and the cycle continued.

I only accepted I had a problem after I tried committing suicide.

Burale is now out of debt and this he did by paying off debts slowly with the money he got from his jobs as a motivational speaker, actor and Image consultant.

Kenyan teen goes missing in Germany after quarreling with her parents

Police in Potsdam, Germany are looking for a Kenyan teen who went missing a week ago from her home after quarreling with her parents

The 15-year-old only identified as Britney, has been missing since Tuesday, October 15, 2019.

Mkenya Ujerumani, a local blog about Kenyans in Germany reports that the teen had a quarrel with her parents before she left their home in Drewitz in Potsdam.

At the time she is reported to have said she was going visit some acquaintances but never showed up nor returned home.

Her parents are worried since this is the first time Britney has been away from home for such a long time.

A day after she disappeared, a passerby walking by the banks of River Havel came across a bag with Britney’s personal belongings, identification and some clothes.

POLICE SEARCH

Upon reporting to the police, divers, a helicopter, a drone and search dogs from the coast guard were dispatched for a search operation in the river but nothing was found.

Police printed posters that were placed around all the major train stations in Potsdam but none of the four received clues brought them closer to finding the girl.

“The investigation team consists of ten police officers and will be headed by Commissioner Falk Heidke, who has substantial experience in the search of missing children and teenagers,” the spokeswoman for the Police Department West said on Friday.

There’s a good chance your tin of coffee contains ground-up cockroaches

Published

on

Some people can’t start a day without a coffee – and a lot of people might change their coffee habit for good after this.

For most of us who can’t afford a coffee shop-like monster machine to use whole beans, we often reach for big tins and jars of pre-ground beans to keep going for a couple of weeks at least.

A few people oddly develop an allergic reaction to this widely consumed type of coffee. Sucks for them but innocent enough, right?

Wrong. The reason why they start to experience this allergy will make your skin crawl.

That’s because if you’re drinking coffee made from pre-ground beans, there’s also a pretty high chance you’re swigging down ground-up cockroaches.

University of Montana biology professor Douglas Emlen first spilled the beans on the gross finding in a 2009 interview about his research into dung beetles, as reported by news.com.au .

Dr Emlen described how, as a student, he drove across the country with his professor who was ‘fiercely addicted to caffeine’ and often made them drive up to 45 minutes off route to find somewhere that served whole bean fresh ground coffee.

“I remember giving him a really hard time because we were wasting a lot of travel time trying to feed his addiction because he needed a coffee every couple of hours,” said Dr Emlen.

“And he finally explained to me he had to drink only whole bean fresh ground coffee — and it was because of cockroaches.”

After years of teaching entomology, the study of insects and their relationships with humans, the professor became badly allergic to cockroaches from handling them so often.

He couldn’t touch a cockroach without getting a reaction and suffered similarly when he drank coffee made from pre-ground beans.

When the professor looked into it he found pre-ground coffee is all processed from huge stockpiles that get infested with cockroaches.

He explained that little can be done to filter out the creatures, so they all get ground up along with the beans. Feeling ill yet? Here’s a little more.

Dr Emlen said at the time US defect standards allowed coffee beans to contain as much as 10 percent’ insect filth and insects’.
