Larry has revealed that Bob Collymore encouraged him to learn how to shave himself like he used to. This is an advice the late Safaricom CEO gave him almost 10 years ago.
In his opinion, Bob said spending money on a haircut was a waste of money.

But what took him so long to heed the advice?
Larry revealed that he decided to practice what Bob had advised him after his barber went on a 2 weeks vacation.

He realized that in the two weeks he had saved $40 by shaving himself.

“I’ve finally learnt to shave myself almost 10 years after Bob Collymore(RIP) encouraged me to do it like he used to. He said I was wasting money. He would be proud” Larry Madowo stated.
