Safaricom Chief Executive Officer, Bob Collymore is back after a 9-month sick leave. The gigantic service provider boss announced his return via social media.
Bob Collymore left office in October 2017 to seek undisclosed medical attention. In March this year, he addressed Safaricom investors through a video call and promised them that he’d be back as he was in his last treatment phase.
“I have just entered the final phase of treatment and expect to be back in Nairobi as soon as doctors feel that my immune system is sufficiently robust to withstand the infection risks that are usually associated with airline travel,”
In his comeback tweet, Safaricom’s boss thanked all those who stood by him, including his wife, Wambui Kamiru.
“I'm back. Thanks to everyone who supported me over the past 9 months especially the clinical team at @uclh, my superb @SafaricomPLC team and of course my wife @WambuiKamiru,” read his tweet on 6th August.

In response to the gratitude, Wambui took to Collymore’s timeline to express her joy at his recovery and return to work. She went ahead and dedicated Bill Withers’ Lovely Day song to him.
