Former Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore left all his Kenyan wealth estimated at hundreds of millions of shillings to his wife Wambui Kamiru.
In wishes captured in his final will and exclusively obtained by The Standard, Collymore appointed State House Chief of Staff Nzioka Waita as an alternate executor of his will should anything happen to Wambui.
Collymore married Wambui in April 2016 but died three years into the marriage in July 2019. In the application for grant of probate lodged with the courts, Wambui has redacted the full inventory of his wealth estimated to run into billions.
In 2015, Collymore had declared his Kenyan wealth as assets worth Sh287 million.
“I give, devise and bequeath all my estate, real and personal, immovable and movable whatsoever and wheresoever situated to my wife for her own use and benefit absolutely,” clause 3 of the Will dated April 18, 2018, reads.
The will strictly applies to his wealth in Kenya and makes mention of a separate one outside Kenya.
Collymore’s son by his previous marriage James Collymore of UK would take 40 per cent of his wealth while his daughter Sarah Collymore, similarly of UK, would get an equal share of the estate.
Wambui’s children would get 20 per cent of the wealth but only after attaining the age of 18, and in equal shares.
