The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Kenya’s leading Telecommunications firm Safaricom, Bob Collymore, is back in Kenya running the billion dollar firm.

Mr Collymore is a popular guest with all media houses in Kenya, often seen on the leading platforms within Kenya. It was no surprise to see him back on ‘the bench’ with Jeff Koinange – who is a close friend – discussing his Cancer (Leukaemia) diagnosis, the treatment process and plans for Safaricom going forward.

In the interview, Mr Collymore gives encouragement to those with similar illnesses and actually states “being diagnosed with Cancer was not a big deal.”

We wish Bob Collymore all the health and success as he takes back control of the company he has grown to love in the country that he calls his second home.

The interview can be seen below.
