UHURU reveals what BOB COLLYMORE told him in his last days before he met his maker – This will make many Kenyans cry

Thursday July 4, 2019-President Uhuru Kenyatta has today eulogized late former Safaricom boss, Bob Collymore, as a man who truly lived life in service of not just himself, his family but of society

Speaking during the Collymore's memorial service at All Saints Cathedral, Uhuru narrated how Collymore called him at late hours of the night during his recent trip to Canada.

"I asked him: Bob, why are you calling me at 2 o'clock in the morning?" Uhuru said.

Collymore was unaware the President was on a foreign trip.

Uhuru offered to call Collymore when he returned, but the former Safaricom CEO said he had something urgent to discuss.

"He said: There is something urgent I wanted to tell you, but I guess it can wait. But I just wanted to tell you, I made you a promise that I'd hang on for another year or so in the company (Safaricom), but I think I'm going to break that promise," he said.

When Uhuru asked why, Collymore said they would talk about it when he returned.
On Uhuru's return, he went to visit Collymore at his house.

"He was calm and said everything was fine, but that like as he had said, he would have to break his promise."

Uhuru initially thought Collymore's wife, Wambui Kamiru, had put him under pressure to quit the company but he said, "It's not quite that... I don't think I have more than a couple of weeks to go."

Uhuru suggested Collymore try seeking more treatment, but Collymore said he had "given up" after trying everything.
