After making a surprise guest during a party hosted by celebrity actress Brenda Wairimu on Saturday night, Bob Collymore, the philanthropic Safaricom CEO splashed ‘real’ cash from his wallet as three paintings raised Sh250,000 for charity.

Brenda, who runs the Believe Begin Become tagged girlchild-fronted charity organisation was hosting her close friends in a meet-and-greet cocktail ceremony at the Junction mall when the Safaricom boss showed up to the sweet surprise of those in attendance.

Bob, who is a close friend of Brenda’s singing celebrity boyfriend Juliani led the auction moment by buying a painting by Neibaz Fashion House for Sh70,000 before Brenda’s mother got another one at almost similar amount. Also present during the evening party was Juliani and Nick Ndeda, the emcee of the day.
