Robert (Bob) Collymore has been cremated at a private function at Kariokor Crematorium today.
Bob was Safaricom’s CEO until his untimely death on Monday morning, July 1, at the age of 61 at his home in Nairobi after a long battle with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia cancer.
LEE FUNERAL HOME
His body was taken to the Lee Funeral Home after collapsing in his home.
Only family and close friends were allowed inside Kariokor Crematorium. This private event was heavily guarded.
He joins a growing list of prominent people in Kenya who have opted for cremation over traditional burial.
According to Safaricom chairman Nicholas Ng’ang’a, a memorial service is planned for later this week.
