President Uhuru Kenyatta reminded the late Bob Collymore's close friends that they have a debt to pay him.

Speaking on Thursday during Collymore's memorial service, Uhuru revealed that the former Safaricom CEO's friends had taken something that was reserved for him.

"My one disappointment, I was supposed to go back to collect something that was reserved for a special friend, so Peter Kenneth, Oigara and crew you have to pay. That didn't belong to you," Uhuru said.

The congregation could not hold back laughter as the President asked Collymore's close friends known as the "boyz club" to pay him back.

Uhuru also revealed that he had spent 3 hours with Collymore before his passing where the latter engaged him in conversation on his vision for Safaricom and the country.

Shared a bottle of whiskey  

"We talked about how to deal with the moral fabric of society that has collapsed," the President stated.

Earlier on politician Peter Kenneth had recounted Collymore's last meeting with his close friends where they shared a bottle of whiskey which was reserved for the special friend.

"He went into his whiskey store and opened a very special reserve blended whiskey that he had saved many years for a special friend," Kenneth stated.

"He insisted we become the special guest and he insisted that we all share the whiskey even for those who don't drink whiskey," he added.

Uhuru's eulogy

Collymore, in early June this year called President Kenyatta to inform him of his impending death while the Head of State was in Canada for a global conference.

President Kenyatta said, in his speech at the All Saints Cathedral, that Collymore called him at “odd hours” to hint at his impending demise.

Bob told me what he wanted to share with me was urgent, but it could wait until I return to Kenya," President Kenyatta said.

The Head of State eulogized the Late Bob Collymore as a “passionate friend”, who “is a part of our soul”.
