Jeff Koinange has not yet come to terms with the fact that his close friend and brother, Bob Collymore is no more.
In an interview with Kiss100, Jeff emotionally opened up that there are days he imagines Bob talking to the boys club.
It’s been more than two weeks now but it has not yet hit me that he is gone. Sometimes, I still sit down and imagine Bob walking in and asking us how we are doing. ‘Hey guys did you miss me?’
If there is one thing he wishes he had told Bob, it is how great a human being he was despite the fact that he always said he is not perfect.
Collymore, in his last interview on Jeff Koinange Live Show, asked Jeff to host female executives who are shaking and moving the industry live on air.
PROMISE ME THAT YOU WILL DO THAT (HOST FEMALE CORPORATE LEADERS). IN MY COMPANY, WE HAVE SOME GREAT WOMEN, DEBRAH, RITA, SYLVIA. THEY HAVE A LOT TO SHARE… AND PLEASE CALL US AND LET US WATCH THE SHOW
Jeff fulfilled that request.
Weeks after his send-off, Jeff hosted Serah Katusia, Managing Director at MediaCom, Jane Karuku the CEO Kenya Breweries Limited and Rita Kavashe Managing Director at Isuzu East Africa.
In Jeff’s life, the memory of Bob will forever remain.
Jeff says he wants to leave a good legacy.
“Ten or twenty years from now, I want people to say there was someone who used to say ooh my, and he made an impact on people’s lives because life is never that serious.”
