Bob Collymore: Maina Kageni promised to visit me in hospital but never showed up
“Safaricom are eating my bundles” jokes aside. Bob Collymore, the CEO of Safaricom, on Wednesday jokingly taunted Classic 105 presenter Maina Kageni for failing to visit him while in hospital abroad.
Collymore, who recently revealed on Citizen TV that he had cancer, joked that Maina never showed for support.
“Tell Maina if he is watching this, thanks for not visiting me. In December Maina said I am going to come and visit you, bro. He never turned up,” Bob told Jeff Koinange when Maina sent a tweet during the show.
He went on to say that even after coming back to the country, Maina was supposed to call him but never did.
“He told me that he was going to call me tomorrow morning that is yesterday. So I skipped the gym but the guy never did. So when you call, Maina, I am not answering so do not bother,” Collymore said.
During the interview, Collymore opened on being diagnosed with cancer.
“I was diagnosed with cancer. The doctors told me at the time that I had probably had it for about six months. He said I was fine but noted that the treatment would he harsh and would take six to nine months.
“Being diagnosed with cancer was not a big deal. I thought this was going to be tough I called my team and told them to put systems in place for when I would be away,” he said.
