Bob Collymore’s body has just left Lee Funeral Home ahead of his final send-off.
The family has asked for privacy as they carry out the final rites. The Safaricom boss will be cremated today at Kariakor.
Two days before he died, Jeff Koinange narrated how he, together four others went to Collymore’s house to hang out with him.
As usual, that broad smile greeted us at the door. He was in pain. We could see that. He said his spine was ‘killing’ him but he walked us in, his back straight as a rod. We sat down and me being the youngest served everyone with drinks.

Bob’s wife, Wambui brought him some herbal tea. He talked and talked.
“I’ve lived a great life, Gents,” he said, “I’ve made mistakes but I rectified them. That’s what you guys have to do. Rectify your mistakes otherwise, you will have learnt nothing from life.” He talked some more, “Thanks for being there for me. You guys are my real friends,” Jeff said.
