The Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) Haji now seeks to withdraw Tob Cohen’s murder case against Sarah Wairimu and her co-accused Peter Karanja.
in a letter filed before the High court Criminal Division, Haji wants the court to terminate the murder trial against the duo.
"I hereby enter a Nolle Prosequi (do not prosecute) and inform this Honourable court that the Republic intends that the criminal proceedings against the above-named persons who are charged with the offence of Murder contrary to section 203 as read with section 204 of the Penal Code, Laws of Kenya shall not continue," reads the letter in part signed by Haji's deputy Jancita Nyamosi.
Wairmu and her co-accused were charged with killing her estranged husband, Tob Cohen, in September 2019.
