Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore Passes On

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing away of Robert (Bob) William Collymore CEO of SAFARICOM.PLC, which occurred at his home on the morning of 1st July 2019.

In October 2017, Bob proceeded to the UK to receive treatment for Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) and returned in July 2018 to resume duties. He has been undergoing treatment for this condition since then in different hospitals and most recently at Aga Khan University Hospital in Nairobi. In recent weeks, his condition worsened and he succumbed to the cancer at his home in the early hours of Monday 1st July 2019. 

Bob Collymore leaves behind a wife and four children.

On behalf of the Board of SAFARICOM.PLC, we extend our deepest condolences to his family, staff of SAFARICOM.PLC, partners and the nation at large who he served selflessly and with joy.

Nicholas Nganga,

Chairman, Safaricom PLC
