Ruby Saleh, and 41-year-old sister of the late Gokada Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Fahim Saleh, has sworn to get justice for her 33-year-old little brother who was murdered mid-July.
The PUNCH reported that the body of the tech entrepreneur was dismembered inside his luxury Manhattan condo where an electric saw was found.
Ruby who spoke in an emotional video on Friday, said, “My family and I will do everything to keep Fahim’s memory alive and to keep his visions going.
“We will also dedicate ourselves to ensure Fahim gets justice. My brother’s death is a crime of the cruelest and heinous nature.
“Whether you know Fahim or not, we may reach out to you for help in achieving our goals and we hope that you will be just as kind as Fahim was.
“If you are someone’s sister, the next time you see your brother, please hug him as tightly as you can, for as long as you want because that’s all I want to do every time I see those photos. But I will never be able to hug Fahim again.”
In another tribute titled, ‘Mourning my baby brother, Fahim’ posted on Medium, the deceased’s sister said she ensured all the body parts of her late brother were properly fitted in the casket before he was buried on Sunday, July 19, 2020, in the Hudson Valley.
“Fahim was born in 1986. He was a precocious, curious, active, and happy child. His love of technology began early. Any time he received a toy, he would take it apart to see how it was built.
“Fahim’s passion was technology and his brilliance was his endless creativity and curiosity. When he discovered the Internet, he finally had a way to channel his God-given gifts. He was 12 when he built his first website, “The Saleh Family”.
“Fahim quickly discovered that he could make money on the Internet by creating websites. He monetised his first website in 1999, when he was 13 years old. The site was called Monkeydoo: jokes, pranks, fake poop, fart spray and more for teenagers. Our father worried when the first $500 check arrived in the mail from Google, addressed to Fahim Saleh. How is this boy making $500? That is so much money, he would later tell me he had thought.
