DAILY POST: BOB COLLYMORE under pressure to step aside over poor health, Cancer has taken a toll on him.




Friday,

– Safaricom CEO, Bob Collymore,
is under pressure to step aside as the boss of the telecommunication giant over
poor health.

According to well placed sources,
Collymore’s health has deteriorated and he is finding it hard to run day to day
activities at Safaricom.

Late last year, he flew out of the Country
for specialized medical attention where he stayed in UK for about 9 months after
he was diagnosed with blood cancer (leukemia).

While appearing in an interview on Jeff
Koinange’s JKL Live on Citizen TV,
Bob revealed how he fell ill and took a long time before finding out he had
cancer.

I had been feeling unwell for awhile, tired
and with high temperatures from time to time; it got so bad that I could not
make it to company events,”
  He said.
When
he went for blood tests at Nairobi Hospital, doctors referred him to a
specialist in the UK who diagnosed him with leukemia.
Sources
at Safaricom informed us that Board members and majority shareholders have
requested him to quit if he feels he can’t continue with the management job
which is so demanding.
A
video of the latest Safaricom advert dubbed Tuko
Na Wewe Kila Wakati
where Bob makes an appearance proves that his health
has deteriorated.

He
is not the jovial and energetic Bob we were used to.
These
days, he rarely makes appearance in the media or social media events the way he
used to do before cancer took a toll on his health.
We
wish him quick recovery.
