In an emotional tweet, Wambui Kamiru revealed how she lost her sense of smell after her hubby died.
She is the widow to former Safaricom boss Bob Collymore.
According to Wambui, she dealt with grief by losing some of her senses, including smell. She disclosed that for months now, she has not been able to smell anything.
Initially, losing this important sense frustrated her. However, with time she got used to it and accepted she could not smell anything.
The widow seemed fascinated at how the rain works in her tweet.
“The brain is interesting. My sense of smell has been gone for a number of months. This is linked to grief. Initially, it frustrated me. Then I just accepted the process,” the late Safaricom CEO’s wife tweeted.
Although her sense of smell is back, Wambui revealed it was not working regularly. According to her, the nose registers the smell of burnt toast as that of rose petals.
She, however, is still grateful for having her sense of smell back.
Wambui became a widow after her husband; the late Bob Collymore passed away. He succumbed to Acute Myeloid Leukemia on July 1, 2019.
According to her social media, Wambui is still very fond of her late husband.
She reminisced on the impromptu selfies she used to take while they were hanging out together.
Wambui shared some of her moments with Bob Collymore depicting what some would call ‘couple goals’.
Kamiru clearly still remembers all the time they spent together, now just a bag of sweet memories.
At his time of death, close friends revealed Bob had made peace with his fate. He claimed he was now ready to die.
Before his death, close allies revealed he threw a party celebrating his life.
However, his passing on took Kenya by a wave. Many did not know of his longtime sickness.
