Wambui Kamiru first Marriage
Wambui Wamae Kamiru was initially married to Joseph Kinyua in 2007. They were blessed with two lovely twin girls. In 2011 her marriage took a different twist after she met Safaricom CEO, Bob Collymore.
The end of her first marriage started during a fundraiser for survivors of the Loreto Convent Msongari school bus crash that occurred in July 2011 where Wambui was part of the event in her capacity as an alumnus and Bob Collymore was there representing Safaricom Foundation in the fundraising. The two met and they were cupid struck.
Wambui Kamiru Divorce
Wambui abandoned her husband and their twins for the wealthy Safaricom CEO and then filed for divorce accusing her husband of domestic violence through her veteran family lawyer Judy Thongori.
In a quick rejoinder, her husband also filed another divorce case accusing her of infidelity. Bob Collymore was named as a respondent in the divorce case but he claimed through his lawyer that he met Wambui when she was divorced.
The divorce case proceedings were never made public by the mainstream media for fear of losing the billions of shillings they get from Safaricom’s advertising appetite.
But it seems the case was amicably concluded because now Wambui Wamae Kamiru and Bob Collymore are happily married.
