Kantai is allegedly a close friend to the main suspect in the Tob Cohen murder case: Sarah Wairimu.

Detectives claim that the judge ‘coached’ Wairimu as investigations were ongoing.

In October last year, DCI George Kinoti accused Wairimu and her lawyer Phillip Murgor of trying to control investigations and the trial process.

However, she was freed on Ksh.2 million bail or two sureties of Ksh. 2 million each.
