BBC reporter Larry Madowo is one of the Kenyans who had a close relationship with Bob Collymore.
Among the many memories he has is of him buying bob airtime.
Crazy as it may seem Bob needed airtime while he was on air during a past show of the ‘The Trend’.
Taking to his social media to share the bitter sweet but funny story Larry says,
I have hundreds of texts with Bob Collymore going back to 2011. He responded to each of the countless interview requests, banter and more recently, health updates. He lived a full, passionate life.
‘Hello, is this London calling?’ That’s how he answered the phone when I called him after joining the BBC. Even in sickness, his wit was razor sharp.
‘No, I’m actually in Nairobi right now.’ He was disappointed that I didn’t catch on immediately. I’ll miss a good sparring partner.
And he never paid me back that Sh100 😂So long, my friend 💔
