Bob Collymore, the Guyanese-born British businessman who oversaw the expansion of Kenyan telecoms firm Safaricom into East Africa’s biggest mobile network operator, has died.

Safaricom confirmed that the 61-year-old had passed away from cancer while at home this morning. Collymore had been receiving treatment for acute myeloid leukemia in the UK and in Kenya for almost two years.
Collymore took over as CEO of Safaricom after nine years in Africa and Asia with British telecom firm Vodafone, which partly owns Safaricom together with the Kenyan government and South African mobile operator Vodacom.

It doesn't say which cancer, but I would bet money on it being Conlon Cancer.

He was the friendly, social face of their operation. Charles was/is the bigger ideologue though.

Well, interestingly their influence in politics has declined anyway. They used Obama as a boogeyman and Trump doesn't care about their free market ideology.
