Big Win For Wambui On Bob Collymore’s Sh200 Million Assets

The High Court has granted Wambui Collymore temporary permission to manage assets left by former Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore, as Justice Maureen Odero prepares to hear the succession case involving one of the most influential corporate chiefs in Kenya’s history.

Collymore had two children -- James and Sarah -- from his previous marriage to Claire-Bishop Collymore.Earlier on Ms Wambui’s lawyers had told Justice Odero that the two children and their mother were yet to secure the services of an advocate to represent them in the succession case.

Ms Wambui’s lawyers have asked the court to the lock media and the public out of the succession case, claiming that the matter is misreported whenever it comes up before the judge.As the Collymore family has largely kept its affairs private, there is no indication as to whether James and Sarah are likely to support or oppose the will filed in court.

Ms Wambui has asked Justice Odero to allow her to leave out some of Collymore's properties from the court record, to avoid a lot of publicity that she believes could do more harm than good to the family. In 2015, Collymore revealed that he had assets worth Sh277.3 million spread out in cash, real estate, cars and shares in various companies
