The former Safaricom Chief Executive Officer, during an interview in August 2018, opened up on his journey battling with cancer.
“I went to London, and they told me I had acute myeloid leukemia- a rare kind of blood cancer that is curable. I was diagnosed with cancer. The doctors told me at the time that I had probably had it for about 6 months he revealed,” said Bob Collymore.
‘If I were not CEO at Safaricom, if I worked at the call centre for instance, I would get the same medical access. I have 6 colleagues currently undergoing cancer treatment,” he added.
