Safaricom Shops to Remain Closed on Thursday During Bob’s Memorial Service


Safaricom shops will remain closed countrywide on Thursday from 10:30AM to 2:30PM, in honour of the late CEO Bob Collymore, whose memorial service is set for Nairobi’s All Saints Cathedral.

A statement from Safaricom read: “As a mark of respect for our cherished leader, Safaricom shall be closing all our shops countrywide on Thursday 4th July 2019 between the hours of 10.30am and 2.30pm.”

Collymore passed on on Monday and his body was cremated at a private event in Nairobi on Tuesday where only family and very close friends were invited.

The late CEO can be termed as a visionary leader and was instrumental in Safaricom’s growth.
