For Gabriele Cohen, the last two months have overran her emotional drivers, tugging her heart strings with fear of the unknown, following the disappearance of her elder brother and Dutch millionaire Tob Cohen.
Now, just days after the 71-year-old’s body was found dumped inside a septic tank at his Kitisuru home, conversations between the tycoon’s wife Sarah Wairimu and his siblings have emerged online.
The screenshots published by a local Kenyan blog were retrieved from the suspect’s personal blog where she gave details about her troubled marriage and Tob’s mental problems days after he was reported missing this year.
“His mental state has always been an issue, and his family is well too aware of this. Despite recent media appearances by his sister Gabrie, where she has been saying that there was nothing wrong with her brother and that she suspects I am complicit in the death of her brother (seen in this video), my conversations with them shall prove otherwise. In the screenshots below, my conversations with both Gabrie and their other brother, Bernard, show that I have been talking about Tob’s mental health issues for a while. Unfortunately, they were both unwilling to be of much assistance. However, I do not necessarily hold this against them, given how difficult Tob has been even to his family over the years. What I am not happy about is the lie by Gabrie that I somehow have been a burden to them, and not the other way round.”
Sarah went on to add that that her late husband had been involved in disciplinary cases with two local hotels and was barred from their premises for some months.
“Tob has always had issues of aggression, abusive language and drug & alcohol abuse. My personal experience with the man has shown me that Tob is a perfect candidate for depression, bi-polar disorder, or some mild form of schizophrenia. I have always maintained over the years that Tob needs some form of help from a mental health professional. I expressed this clearly to him and his family many times, but he dismissed it, and no one took notice. This was until 20 July 2019. On this day, he finally admitted that he was ready to get help, and that he was tired of all the drama that has been happening in his life. When he left the house, he promised he’d get help. That was the last time I spoke with him. I hope that wherever he is, he’s getting the help he needs.”
