When Robert ‘Bob’ Collymore tied the knot with Wambui Kamiru in April 2016, it was termed the wedding of the year.
The invite-only wedding, which took place at an upmarket residence in Kitisuru, was attended by the who is who in the industry.
Radio Africa CEO Patrick Quarcoo, Scangroup CEO Bharat Thakrar and top media personality Jeff Koinange were among those who witnessed the Safaricom CEO exchange vows with Wambui.
After their wedding, critics trolled Wambui, and she responded in a letter titled ‘A Letter To My Children’. She set the record straight about her relationship with Bob. In part, she wrote:
My marriage to the man I love and respect had some interesting effects on the conversations on Twitter and Facebook (these may be obsolete by the time you are reading this).
However, for a few days there, lots of Kenyans talked about ‘tribalism’, and some admitted their desire to leave and go to another country because of how unbearable it can be sometimes to live in a society where people first judge you by your ‘tribal’ origin. A lot of people refused to be part of the conversation, arguing that it should no longer matter. These people are the reason why we will still have a country to call home.
