Bob Collymore’s wife Wambui Collymore revealed Diani Beach was Bob’s favourite place in the world.
That’s the reason why the family decided to spread his ashes in Diani after his demise.
Moreover, before Collymore died, he gave instructions about everything he wanted done after his death.
The ashes were spread in the ocean to enable people to feel his presence whenever they were near a sea.
“Bob’s ashes were deposited into the sea in Diani. Diani was his favourite beach in the whole world, so we thought it best to put his ashes in the sea there,” Wambui disclosed to a local daily.
Bob Collymore was not only known for his amazing business skills and being a great leader, but he also had a loveable personality.
According to his wife, Bob never reached for the phone immediately after waking up in the morning. He always did other important things like exercising every day.
Bob was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia after being flown to the UK for treatment.
After returning to Kenya in 2018, his condition deteriorated and he passed away soon after.
