Forget the rumor, Bob Collymore is in Safaricom to stay 

There have been a lot of speculations about Bob Collymore’s future in Safaricom. Rumormongers have been peddling lies about Collymore leaving the telecommunications giant.

Safaricom announced on October 30th that Collymore had gone for a medical leave. A statement by Safaricom Chairman Nicholas Ng’ang’a said that Collymore would be away for a number of months as he had gone for specialized treatment.

The likes of Robert Alai and other social media influencers have been posting misleading information. Alai falsely claimed on Twitter on Tuesday November 14th that Safaricom was interviewing potential candidates to replace Collymore.

Collymore contract extended until 2019

Collymore’s contract was only renewed in May 2017. He will remain Safaricom CEO for the next two years following the extension of his term.



If Safaricom was recruiting a new CEO it would have advertised the position on local dailies. Don’t trust everything you read on social media.
