Early this month, President Uhuru Kenyatta put Peter Kenneth and the rest of “Boys Club” members on the spot after drinking a special whiskey reserved for him by the late Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore.
Peter Kenneth confessed that the late Bob offered them a special brand of Whiskey that had been reserved for a special friend, in this case President Uhuru.
“He (Collymore) eventually went into his whisky store and opened a very special reserve blended whisky that he had saved many years for a special guest. He insisted we become the special guests and he insisted that we all share the whisky even for those who do not drink whisky,” said Kenneth.
President Uhuru later revealed the whiskey was reserved for him, and the Boys Club had to pay for drinking his special whiskey.
The Boys Club, made up of businessman Ally Khan Satchu, Radio Africa Group CEO Patrick Quarcoo, politician Peter Kenneth, Jeff Koinange, Scangroup CEO Bharat Thakrar, and Kenya Commercial Bank CEO Joshua Oigara, had to do a worldwide search for the hard-to-find whiskey brand.
Speaking on Sunday at his mother’s memorial service at his home in Loresho, Peter Kenneth said the boys had found the whiskey after an intense wordlwide search.
“A member of the club called it “an unbelievable stroke of luck” to find it, but suffice to say, Bob Collymore may have helped from high up!” .
The whiskey in question is a Johnnie Walker Directors Blend edition, released in 2010 and was exclusively for Diageo directors.
