Details about the 130 year old gift Bob Collymore owed President Uhuru

 

Before he died, the late Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore had a gift for his pal President Uhuru.

The gift is now the subject of debate on social media after Uhuru hinted that Collymore could have given it to his boys club.

While the gentlemen in the boys club chuckled about it, President Uhuru notified them that they will have to return it, ASAP.

Uhuru said, “I was supposed to have gone back to collect my gift reserved for a special friend from Bob and so Peter Kenneth, Oigara and crew, you will pay. That did not belong to you.”

What is this gift you ask?

Well it turns out it is a Johnnie Walker Directors Edition brand that Uhuru is said to love (The oldest blended scotch whisky ). It’s not available to the public.

According to the Whiskys auctioneer:

Johnnie Walker The Directors Complete Collection 6 x 70cl

Never available at retail, this collection was only given to very important Diageo types. Very few bottles made it to the secondary market and collectors have fought to get hold of this essential part of Walker history.

Incredibly rare, this is the complete 6 bottle collection consisting of annual releases between 2008 and 2013, each with their own unique, presentation, design and character, yet all unmistakably Johnnie Walker.
