Speaking during his mother’s memorial service, former Presidential aspirant Peter Kenneth revealed that that the ‘boys club’ has shipped the bottle by special courier from Amsterdam for the President.
According to Kenneth, the bottle shipped in was the last one available globally of the exclusive whiskey that Uhuru missed from the late Collymore.
During Collymore’s memorial service, Uhuru noted his disappointed for missing the ‘special gift’ which the late CEO shared with his ‘boys’.
Uhuru lamented: “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.”
