After businessman Chris Kirubi snubbed Obama, another high profile person has followed suit. Safaricom CEO Bob Collymore has also refused to attend a meeting with Obama in Dar-es-salaam next week.

Bob made the announcement on Twitter, in response to his friend Chris Kirubi, who sought to know his opinion on his earlier snub.

I’ve been having a field day with the media & Obama and now I’m in ‘trouble’ but I’ve not heard from my friends @bobcollymore @alykhansatchu

Bob then informed him that he had also done the same.

@CKirubi @alykhansatchu I have already declined an invitation to Dar next Monday.
