Kenya based Dutch billionaire Tob Cohen’s search came to an end after his decomposing body was recovered at his Nairobi home in Kitisuru estate inside a septic tank.
This brought the nation to a standstill as his wife, Sarah Wairimu, became the first suspect to the gruesome murder.
Kenya’s director of criminal investigations, George Kinoti, could not find enough words to describe the murder.
“Cohen was, it is a gruesome murder, they took their time to kill innocent Cohen,” he said. “He was bound on legs, hands, and neck before he was murdered and then they hid him in an underground water tank. They took their time,” he added.
Wairimu, being a Kikuyu lady, led to an online frenzy as netizens took to social media insulting Kikuyu ladies, describing them as murderers. She was said to have been a perfect example to what Kikuyu ladies are.
It’s just the internet so
Men are generalized as trash, Igbo & Luo men are generalized as devils, Kamba women are generalized as insatiable sex machines alafu Kikuyu women are generalized as Murder Shiro’t for half a day… guess who is complaining the most?

Remember Sarah Wairimu is a Kikuyu woman. Kikuyu women don’t mourn, they celebrate the death of their husbands.

Being inconsolable, I have decided to create a google doc list of all sympathizers of Sarah Wairimu.
Your employers must know that you support the relentless murder of Kenyan men by Kenyan women.
One of you even said “not all Kikuyu women”. Reported, blocked and listed her!! pic.twitter.com/9KiPHAJqJv

Kikuyu ladies won’t marry a hustler from another tribe
Kikuyu ladies will marry a rich dude from a different tribe only to massacre the dude😢

Luckily, not everyone believed in the said sentiments as others defended Kikuyu ladies saying its wrong for all to be judged because of one of them who did wrong.
To the front line, Hon Babu Owino and blogger Robert Alai stepped out to defend these ladies. Married to a Kikuyu lady, Babu said described other Kikuyu ladies as angels.
“Not all Kikuyu women are bad as people are putting it, some are angels,” he said.

Alai also condemned those referring to the ladies as murderers saying that it is uncalled for, judging a whole community for the account of an individual.
He also reminded them that every community has criminals. “Suspect Sarah Wairimu is not representative of all Kikuyu ladies,” he said.
“People must not blame a whole community for the crimes of an individual. I have Kikuyu relatives too and we can’t all be looking at them like greedy murderers. Even my community has murderers, “he added.
