Late Fahim Saleh gets emotional tribute from elder sister
Fahim Saleh, the murdered CEO of Gokada had a very gruesome death and his death will leave a wound that will never heal in the hearts of his loved ones.
She revealed how she found out about her brother's gruesome murder in an article posted on Medium. She wrote,
"On July 14th at 10:47 pm, my phone rang. I was in bed next to my husband and had just begun dozing off, but I answered because it was my aunt, calling from New York.
'I have some very bad news,' she said.
She sounded spooked and was reluctant to divulge more, so I knew something really bad had happened to someone in my immediate family.
My shoulders stiffened while the rest of my body went limp. Maybe one of my parents had Covid?
'What happened?' I kept asking. “What happened?”
I was having trouble drawing a breath. I put the phone on speaker so my husband could listen.
'It’s very bad,” she said.
“Just tell me, Aunty. What happened?”
“Fahim isn’t with us anymore,” she said.'
Her first instinct was disbelief, she said. She continued,
"I dropped the phone and crawled onto the wooden floor, touching its cold, hard surface with the palms of my hands.
I shook my head. “No, no,” I said, my hair falling over my face. “What are they saying?”
I looked up at my husband. He was already crying, as if he had accepted these words about my brother as truth.
His crying didn’t make sense to me because this news couldn’t possibly be real."
