Divorce Affair

Cohen’s Widow Fights Off Bid To Stop Her From Using Murdered Tycoon's ’s Name

The widow of murdered Dutch tycoon Tob Cohen is fighting his family's attempts to prevent her from using his name to identify herself in a court battle over his estate.

Ms Sarah Wairimu Kamotho Cohen maintains that as the late tycoon's wife, she is entitled to use his name, whether he is alive or not.

In her response to Tob's sister, Ms Gabriel Hannah van Straten's application to force her to drop the name Cohen, the widow claims the application is an attempt to divorce her from her husband posthumously.

She claims that this is not the first time the family has attempted to engineer a divorce, pointing out that during her marriage, Ms Straten was a victim of domestic violence. "I am not surprised by Ms Van Straten's attempt to prevent me from using my late husband's name, which is an attempt to divorce me from him posthumously," she says.

She also denies having a strained relationship with Mr Tob, stating that she was married to Tob for 29 years, during which time he addressed her as Mrs Cohen. In court documents, the widow claims that Tob's sister was pushing for their divorce and that she referred to her as a "negro."
